We’re running out of natural resources and we’re living longer so our commitment is to improve livestock productivity and help people live more healthily for longer.

Our job is to make the best, market-leading products for our customers and build deep, long-lasting relationships. We’re both a customer of and supplier to the dairy industry, so we hold a position of influence which we combine with our expertise, vision and energy to make things happen.

Volac is one of Europe’s fastest growing and ambitious international dairy nutrition businesses. It all began in the 1970s when the company was established by the grandfather of the brothers who now run the company.

At Volac we aim to work as a one team with a single focus: our customers. We strive to create an environment in which everyone can flourish and enjoy what they do.
