About KWS

since 1988

Welcome To KWS Namibia

Klein Windhoek Schlachterei, also known as KWS, is a family run butchery that was established in 1988 by Herrmann and Birgit Eckwert. It all started with a small retail shop in Gobabis Weg ( Today Sam Nujoma Drive ) employing only 5 people at the time.

Herrmann Eckwert, a German master butcher, established the business in the scene by supplying specialized German meat products including Sülze, Salami, Leberwurst, Leberkäse, Kassler, Eisbein and many more German delicacies. The retail shop was back in the day famously known in Windhoek for its fresh meat loaf ( Fleischkäse ) which could be collected on Thursday for a delicious lunch as well as Weisswürstchen on Fridays. The Biltong and Droewors are to date considered one of the best in Windhoek.

Throughout the years the butchery grew tremendously and in 1995 transitioned into a wholesale business, located in 13 Albert Wessel Street. The new location features a retail shop front where walk-in customers can purchase fresh & processed meat over the counter. A big variety of meat products including chicken, lamb meat, pork meat, beef meat, game meat, duck, turkey and more are also supplied to catering companies, lodges, hotels, restaurants and all kinds of retail shops throughout Namibia.

On the 08th April 2019, Klein Windhoek Schlachterei celebrated 31 years in the Namibian meat industry with over 40 employees currently employed. Furthermore, the Eckwert sons Wolfgang and Claus have joined the management team of Klein Windhoek Schlachterei to continue the long-lasting family tradition of the business.
