The transaction has been finalized after approval by the Polish antitrust agency.

With annual sales of almost 500,000 tonnes of compound feed, Golpasz is a market leader in turkey feed on the Polish market and has secured a leading position in broiler feed.

This acquisition is consistent with De Heus’ ambition of further strengthening its leading position in Poland.

Golpasz offers a complete range of compound feeds for multiple animal categories, including turkey, broilers, pigs, cattle (meat and milk) and other poultry.

Golpasz, driven by its quality philosophy, experienced strong growth over the past 10 years.

The company has four modern production sites that are favourably located geographically in relation to the most important livestock farming regions.

With a total of twelve plants, De Heus now has an excellent spread across Poland.

The Polish southern growth regions will become more easily accessible through this acquisition.

"Golpasz is a successful, well-managed organisation. Similar to De Heus, the activities and company culture at Golpasz are characterised by entrepreneurship and customer orientation.

"I am convinced that the combination of both companies can further strengthen our market approach," says Adam Zaleski, General Manager De Heus Poland.

Wieslaw llków, General Manager Golpasz, also looks forward to the future with full confidence: “I am happy that Golpasz now forms part of the De Heus family business. De Heus is an ideal new shareholder for us. The company has an excellent reputation."
