1933 - 2019
1933 – Robert Váhala
Váhala story has began in 1927, when its founder Robert Váhala first touched the butcher's craft. He discovered the secrets of making sausages first as a apprentice in Novy Jicin, from where he headed straight to Prague, to the renowned Hulata butcher. And since there was no escape from the love of fragrant sausages, Robert Váhala decided to start his own business. In 1933, when our Czechoslovakia was only 15 years old, he began to make the first delicacies under his brand in rented areas.
1938 – New Cannery
Success came soon, and the modest factory was small for Robert Váhala. In 1938, he began building a new family house with a butcher shop. Along with the production of sausages and the operation of butcher´s shop he began also production of preserved products, especially pate and ready meals. New products have attracted new customers and production areas was small again. That is why Robert Váhala expanded his business in 1946 and he built a new canning factory right behind his house.
1950 – Nationalization
Years of building a business were nationalized by the state. For 41 years, a major breakthrough in his life has taken place - the production of sausage products at the ROBERT VÁHALA family-owned company ended.
1991 – VÁHALA Inc.
However, the story of the sausages fortunately did not end. In 1991 there was a time when no one of Váhala family dit not hoped and after long years of state denial of ownership, Mr. Robert Váhala property was returned. He started new business with his descendants and together they founded a new family business, VÁHALA Inc. , production and sale of meat and delicatessen products.
