Formed in 1984 under the previous name of "Chic-o-Stara Pluimvlees B.V." the company became established in the technical sector of cooked and further processed hen meat which was supplied to all the major European food manufacturing companies. Who in turn produced soups and cooked products for retail.
At that time, the business had its own cooking factories in Holland and the UK but as the food business evolved and the poultry industry consolidated, the manufacturing side was sold and the business moved away from production and into sourcing and selling through strategic partnerships with larger European producers.
The product range that the business now supplies continues to be poultry based but in 2015 the name "Chic-o-Stara Pluimvlees B.V." was shortened and made more user friendly and at the same time, took the opportunity to re-brand and thus "Stara Foods B.V." was born.
In addition, the business moved into the supply of fresh and frozen raw chicken, turkey, duck and other products by working with their established customer base and bringing in trusted and professional partners in those disciplines.
The company changed hands in the mid 2000’s due to the retirement of the original owner and was succeeded by Henk de Fluiter (Jnr) who was the General Manager at the time and who now continues to own and run the operation. Henk is the son of Mr. Henk de Fluiter (Snr) who was a well known ‘name’ in the food business and a well respected pioneer of the Dutch food trading business from the 1970’s until he died in 2016.
