Operating meat, convenience, ingredients and logistics divisions, the company, with annual revenue of around $6 billion, specializes in pig, sow and beef cattle slaughtering, butchering and processing.

Toennies Lebensmittel currently employs more than 8,000 people in facilities in Germany and Denmark. Separately, Clemens owns a majority stake in meat company zur Muehlen Group, which produces over two billion packages a year bearing such popular brand names as Boeklunder, Koenecke, Redlefsen, Schulte and Plumrose.
