Koudijs Animal Nutrition is an organization with a leading position in the Animal nutrition industry, focused on the production, sales and services of complete animal feed, concentrates and premixes. The company, which was founded in the early years of the 19th century, has its roots in the Netherlands. It started as a local company and became an exporter of feed concentrates around 1960. Africa and the Middle-East have been very important markets for the development of Koudijs. At this moment Koudijs is exporting and producing animal feed in Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East and South and Central America.
Koudijs is offering solutions for feed millers, integrators, dealers and importers and direct farmers. In every country worldwide we have our specific approach (and targetgroup) to meet the challenges of the agricultural sector the best. Only with this country-specific approach we are able to fulfill our promise of ‘Feeding Performance’. Feeding Performance is the essence of what we are doing. Bringing progress to the agricultural sector.
In 1998 Koudijs, with all export activities, became a part of the de Heus Group. For Royal de Heus, the largest independent and family owned feed company in the Netherlands, this has been the right strategic decision to make. The combination of de Heus and Koudijs is a successful one. Koudijs has been the cradle for Royal De Heus' expansion from a regional feed company to a feed conglomerate with sales activities in more than 70 countries in Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa and Latin America. Due to the rapid growth outside the Netherlands the De Heus Group is a global top-12 feed supplier.
Together we employ more than 6000 people worldwide. The corporate headquarters of Koudijs and De Heus are located in Ede - Wageningen (the Netherlands).
For many years Koudijs has been supporting farmers in Ghana with their superior feed solutions. With an intensive dealer structure and our on the farm support we have brought performance to our customers.
In 2017 Koudijs parent company, the Dutch Royal De Heus, decided to develop a local production facility to meet the growing demand for Koudijs products in Ghana. In the beginning of 2019 we celebrated the start of the construction. It is our expectation that the factory will be fully operational in 2020.
