In 1932, the Versele family company consisted of a garden restaurant and a grocery. But grand father Prudent Versele was a visionary and wanted to go on the road with composed cattle feed. For this purpose he built a new factory beside the Lys at Astene (Deinze) in 1937. A year later it was in operation. The company grew and after the Second World War it expanded the circle of its clients to the whole country. In 1958, the Astene factory had a capacity of 200,000 tonnes of bagged products.
Today the Versele Nutrition animal food group records an annual turnover of about 430 million euros. The third generation of the Versele's employs close to 900 people in its various sites in Belgium and abroad. On the international level Versele Nutrition develops two main activities.
