In 1972 the leading co-operatives decided on the foundation of aniMedica international as a central purchasing office in order to improve market relevance versus vitamin producer’s monopoly. Long before the discussion about a “united Europe” these companies brought together their common interests as co-operative producers, processors of feed, premixes and mineral feed producers on the basis of a co-operative partnership.
Today the shareholders of aniMedica still represent a major part of European co-operative activities.
By bringing together sales potentials, the company has grown steadily from modest beginnings.
The product portfolioin general has grown but some product ranges disappeared due to market regulation changes. The parties adapted to the requirements of the market and demand potentials. This development has been supported by investments in modern testing and production facilities as well as intensive market research.
Consequently, aniMedica international has succeeded in organizing a future-orientated basis for trade, purchase, and supply of animal feed products and feed additives.
