Henk Hoogwegt founds a dairy exporting company in the Netherlands. It grows and grows – and one day becomes the largest privately held supplier of dairy products in the world.
Hoogwegt makes its first international acquisition. Today, Hoogwegt is active in over 130 countries, and has offices all over the world.
After a merger with Hoogwegt Food Ingredients (HFI), Havero becomes part of the Hoogwegt Group. Rotterdam-based Havero and Arnhem-based HFI both move to a new production location in Gorinchem located right between their respective former locations.
Havero Hoogwegt builds an in-house application laboratory. It enables us to focus on tailor-made solutions, so that we can reduce our customers’ cost prices, improve their product quality and ensure the availability of key ingredients.
Havero Hoogwegt moves to Arnhem, where Hoogwegt headquarters are located. The two companies join forces within Netherlands-based Hoogwegt group of companies.
Hoogwegt celebrates its 50th anniversary, determined to continue adding vision and value to our customers’ business for many decades to come.
