Four generations later, Vanden Avenne has become under the direction of Patrick Vanden Avenne and his sons Thomas and Maurits, one of the major feed companies in Belgium. Every day the impressive feed unit produces in Ooigem 2.000 tonnes of compound feed. However, the ambition of Vanden Avenne stretches far beyond that. Since 2010, Vanden Avenne has a completely new production unit in Floreffe, ten kilometres from Namur in Belgium. This is the largest production unit of animal feed in Wallonia.
