My story

Heritage
My name is Ronald Kranenbarg and meat has been the leading tread in my life, since the day I was born. Biggest influence was the butcher shop that my parents owned. They took it over from my grand father in 1972. It could have been a nice traditional family company, but in March 2008 it stopped……, at least the butcher shop.
The butcher shop closed, but more important, my passion for meat will never fade out.

From butcher to meatinspiration.com
I started this site in May 2010, because I think about meat 24/7. I have been collecting funny and original initiatives (ideas, products, companies, restaurants, butchers, communities etc) regarding to meat for years. Therefore I build up already a huge collection of sources before I created the website in May 2010. With meatinspiration.com I would like to share all this information and make it accessible for a larger crowd, because the jungle of meat related websites and other sources is increasing day by day, but a global map for connecting it is missing. I hope people will discover meatinspiration.com and use it as a tool for innovation in meat in the broadest sense of the word.
