Dohar/Lovaszy Meats was founded by Emery Lovaszy in the late 1940s and Steve Dohar joined him in 1951. At that time they started making their house cured and natural smoked European style meats which is what they are still known for today. In 1987 Steve’s daughter, Angela, and her husband Miklos took over the business. They have kept the old recipes and added some new ones that are proven to be winners with their regular customers.
Every day you can find 25 to 30 homemade products displayed in their cases. They make small batch sizes every week which is the reason they don’t have to use extra preservatives to extend the shelf life. All of their products are naturally smoked without the use of artificial flavors, MSG, or any kind of soy products. They only use locally sourced fresh meats from Sandusky and Jeromesville, Ohio.
