The VanDrie Group reached an agreement with Brons from Voorthuizen concerning a complete takeover. The agreement has been sent to the Autoriteit Consument en Markt (Consumers and Market Authority, ACM) for approval. The two family businesses expect the ACM to give its approval soon.
Brons from Voorthuizen produces high quality compound feeds for beef cattle, pigs and poultry. Brons, with a turnover of 45 million euro, is a stable factor in the Dutch compound feeds market. The takeover offers continuity to the long history of Brons. The family business was established in 1929. All jobs at Brons will be maintained, as well as the company name and premises. The Brons family will also stay actively involved in the company’s activities.
The VanDrie Group is also a Dutch family business. The VanDrie Group makes veal and beef products, calf feed, dairy products and calfskins. With a revenue of 2 billion euros, the company employs approximately 2,500 people. The Brons takeover adds another 29 fte to this figure.
