Frequently Asked Questions



Every Freybe Naturally product is made solely with ingredients all defined as natural by the CFIA.


Most Freybe products can be enjoyed 3-5 days after opening if kept refrigerated and wrapped. As always, consult the label on any of our products for specific suggested consumption times.


Our special blend of spices and spice extracts are proprietary. With that said, if you have a sensitivity that is not a major allergen, a member of our customer service team would be happy to address any of your questions or concerns.


The majority of our products are made in British Columbia in HACCP and SQF certified manufacturing facilities. Our Organically Freybe line and some of our salamis are produced in BRC and HACCP certified facilities in Germany.


Pronounced ‘shar-Koo-ter-ee,’ the term is mostly used to refer to fine sliced and cured meats usually served on platters along fine cheeses, fruits and crackers.


Naturally occurring dense muscle fibers on premium cut slices of roast beef produce an iridescent colour at different angles when exposed to light. This colour is normal and harmless, and has zero effect upon food safety, taste or texture.


We proudly serve a range of products that boast being Antibiotic Free. We’re always looking for new ways to increase the quality of our products, and are currently working hard to expand our selection of Antibiotic Free meats.


Our products contain sodium nitrite with the exception of the Naturally Freybe and Organically Freybe product lines, along with our Weisswurst, Thuringia and Das Brat sausages.

Nitrates/nitrites are salts most commonly used to cure meats. They provide rich flavour and a distinctive deep red colour, while also inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria. While nitrites/nitrates are very common in deli meats, they are naturally occurring in a large variety of foods including spinach, arugula, cabbage and beets.


All Freybe products are gluten and lactose free except for select products that contain cheese.


Our clearly labeled ingredients list on our product labels should provide all the information you need to make the right food choice for your diet. Contact our customer service team with any questions or concerns you might have.


The expiry date on our sliced deli and salami products are found on the vertical edge on the left or right hand side. All of our other products feature a best before date that’s either stickered on, or on the front or back of the package.


All Freybe products are fully cooked, dry cured and ready to eat. With that said, some of our products including our sausages and back bacon taste best when grilled or cooked to perfection.


All Freybe products require refrigeration with the exception of our dry pepperoni, Landjaeger, Swiss Farmer and Dry Spanish Chorizo. We do not recommend freezing as it may affect the taste and texture of our products. For ideal storage and consumption guidelines, look to the back of any of our packages.


Our products use naturally hog, beef or sheep casings. Freybe pepperoni products use collagen casings — an all natural alternative to traditional sausage casings rendered from meat products including beef hides.


Our customer service team can inform you where to find Freybe gourmet meats. We do not currently sell our products online or direct to consumers.
