Cargill to Partner with Dutch Animal Feed Maker

Move comes as lease for Cargill’s Rotterdam location expires

source: Cargill Inc.

Cargill Animal Nutrition announces its intention to enter into a strategic partnership with Dutch family-owned animal nutrition group Fuite to build a state-of-the-art premix, concentrate and young animal nutrition production facility in Hasselt, the Netherlands.

The move comes as Cargill’s land lease for its production facility in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, will expire.

The Rotterdam plant has long served as a key production location for Provimi animal nutrition products and will continue to do so in the next period. Cargill acquired Provimi in 2011 and since continued to rely on the Rotterdam facility as well as the Provimi brand.

Provimi has deep roots in the Rotterdam area, with a legacy that dates back to the company’s founding by entrepreneur Harry Bonda in the early 1930s. When the Rotterdam plant opened in 1956, it marked the start of the global expansion of the Provimi brand.

The intended strategic partnership brings together Fuite Group’s world-class animal nutrition manufacturing capabilities with Cargill’s deep global expertise in animal nutrition.

The two companies are closely collaborating on the development of the new factory, which will enable Cargill to continue to offer its complete portfolio of Provimi products to its customers.

“At the level at which both companies operate, both seek to bundle exclusive qualities”, says Joris van Wichen, Commercial Director, Cargill Animal Nutrition North West Europe.

The new facility is expected to be fully online in 2024, at which time Cargill will transition production from the current Rotterdam facility.

Cargill is engaging with its social partners as appropriate, including initiating a consultation process on the foreseen changes with its Works Council.
