Research and Innovation

We have been partners in the agricultural sector for four generations. Our roots lie in milling and in the farms and companies of our customers and we are still there. That’s why we understand exactly just what matters in this sector and what motivates and concerns farmers - as people, as farmers and as entrepreneurs. We translate this knowledge and experience into tailored advice, feedings concepts and products which fit our customers‘ needs.

The conversion of animal feed to animal protein

This is our area of expertise and it is here that we want to excel. Through intensive collaborations with scientific institutes and our own state-of-the-art research facilities and laboratories, we continually perform applied research to ensure quick application of new knowledge and insights on how the conversion of animal feed to animal protein can be effected even more efficiently. This means continually enriching our knowledge and experience in the areas of:

  • animal health
  • animal nutrition
  • livestock farming
  • quality
  • processing
The acquired insights are subsequently translated into practical applications that can be applied immediately by our farmers. For us, everything revolves around this, continuously enabling farmers to advance!

Successful concepts

Our profession is not only to realise performance with our feed products, but also with our objective advice, our feeding concepts and business services. This drive for performance led De Heus to create several leading insights, products and concepts for our customers throughout the years.
