From the beginning of the thirties, Provimi is one of the leaders in the international animal nutrition industry. After the fifties, in which Provimi experienced a dynamic growth within Europe, the company expanded to other continents such as the Middle East, Far East, Americas and Africa. Provimi developed itself as a pioneer in formulating premixes and concentrates based on local circumstances. This is still visible in the international animal nutrition industry.
At the moment Provimi is a leading producer of animal feeds, specializing in the development and production of premixes, concentrates, additives and specialties, such as piglet feeds and calf milk replacers. The products are produced in our plant in Rotterdam and find their way to dealers and farmers in more than 100 countries.
Our key-objectives are research and development and the production of high quality products. All our products and programs are tested thoroughly before being introduced to the market. Provimi also has a fully equipped laboratory, where all raw materials and end products are being tested. We can also offer you, as a customer, a special rate to analyze your raw materials and end products.
Provimi, part of Cargill's Animal Nutrition business, os active world wide in the agricultural sector. Their activities range the development, production and marketing of animal feeds and feed technology, to trading of raw materials.
NuTec Southern Africa Pty Limited was established in 1996 as a joint venture between Astral Foods Limited (South Africa), an integrated poultry producer, and Provimi Holding BV (The Netherlands), a global leader in animal nutrition. Both shareholders are leaders in their chosen markets. NuTec’s vision is to be the preferred company in animal nutrition solutions and services in Sub-Saharan Africa.
In 2011, Cargill completed the acquisition of Provimi thereby merging the complementary animal nutrition expertise of the two organisations.
Cargill gained majority shareholding (75%) and assumed managerial control of NuTec in December 2012. Astral Foods remains a minority shareholder (25%) and important business partner. Subsequently, the NuTec business has migrated to the Provimi brand.
