Our story

Customers’ needs first

Today’s pet owner is demanding more from pet food producers. In terms of availability, quality and products that respond to trends in line with their beliefs. How can pet food producers meet these demands? Especially when pet food producers face challenges such as volatile pricing, lack of availability, or regulatory bans on certain ingredients especially when R&D activities are outsourced. Royal Avebe acknowledges these challenges and can solve them. Our portfolio offers: solutions to stabilise the final product, (new) textures, replacing ingredients functioning as gelatine, gums, and SDAP in dry, wet and snacks and treats segment. In the newly built and fully equipped Avebe Innovation Center, application development can be done together with customers tailored to specific needs and wishes.
