De Heus Animal Nutrition is an international organization with a leading position in the animal feed industry. Besides establishing the right nutrient requirements and offering tailored feed strategy, De Heus offers broad support and solutions for all types of farms.
De Heus was founded in 1911 and is still owned and managed by the De Heus family today. Once a one-man business, today one of the top animal nutrition suppliers worldwide with production locations all over the world where we produce our nutritional products. Our aim for continuous progress is not limited to the development of our own products. We also want to contribute to the success of our customers and to the further development of the sector. We therefore strongly believe in collaboration with other suppliers in the fish food chain.
The company understands the complexity of aquaculture businesses, where many different factors are in play, affecting a farmer’s result. Every farm is different and requires its own specific fish feed concept. As De Heus has a good understanding of the fish interaction with its environment and the end-product requirements, the company knows how to determine the nutritional needs of your fish / aqua species. De Heus uses these nutritional requirements to develop and produce products that are adapted to the lifecycle stage of the species as well as the individual farm situation and the farmer’s objectives.
De Heus is involved in every level of our sector. On our customers’ farms we resolve practical matters, keep broodstock and offspring healthy, increase production efficiency and improve management processes. At the food chain level we conduct research in converting feed into proteins, also in collaboration with universities and institutes, with which we exchange knowledge. Our knowledge and experience is translated into tailored advice, business services and products which fit our customers’ needs. This is how we help our customers to flourish.
In 2011, the designation ‘Royal’ was awarded to De Heus by the Dutch Royal family, resulting in the incorporation of the Royal Crown into its logo.
