Overberg Foods was founded in 1992 and established itself as one of the leading independently owned food wholesalers and distributors in the country.

In 2018 Overberg Foods became part of the ESS Foods Group in Denmark.

ESS-FOOD is a global supplier of different food products within the Danish Crown family. With 20 offices in 18 countries and annual sales of over 400.000 tonnes, the ESS-FOOD group is among the leading suppliers of products to food manufacturers, retailers, caterers and distributors throughout the world. Our headquarter is placed in the centre of Copenhagen, Denmark, and we employ over 380 people around the world.

Our range of chilled and frozen meat products is virtually endless. We offer a countless number of product combinations based on pork, beef, poultry and lamb. Cuts, recipes, packaging and other important elements can be customized to meet our customer’s specific requirements.

We see ourselves as much more than a supplier of different food products. Our goal is always to establish a value-adding partnership with our customers as well as our suppliers around the world. We are known for our thorough knowledge of local markets and thus we are able to meet local needs and demands, providing customers and suppliers with the highest level of service and competitive prices.

However, at the end of the day – trading is always a matter of trust, and it is our first job to earn yours.

This partnership brings great opportunities for us as a company and for our valued clients.
