About VDS

    VDS has been offering nutritional, technical and management support to feed producers for several decades.
    Our story

    A real family business

    VDS (est. 1966) originally started out as a feed mill. In the seventies, this family business evolved, becoming a nutritional expert and all-in supplier for the animal feed sector. VDS formulated tailor-made vitamin and mineral mixtures for pigs, cattle, poultry and aquaculture. After it became clear that the future of animal feed laid in exports, the company increasingly started to focus on international market exploration. VDS currently has a workforce of 25 employees, who work in the Benelux, South-East Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Our ambition? To achieve sustainable growth and further professionalisation so we can continue to distinguish ourselves from our major European competitors.

    Our values and assets

    From the outset, we chose to invest in our production process and machinery and we continue to do so unconditionally. Consequently we always work with modern machinery. Flexibility and practical knowledge are our priorities, in addition to innovation and sustainability. As such, our aim is to be a dependable, hands-on, no-nonsense and loyal partner for all animal feed producers.
