It was in the early 1960s that Jan van Drie purchased his first newborn calf for fattening. Today, with more than 25 companies, the group is the largest integrated veal producer in the world and thereby the global market leader in veal and the largest producer of calf milk.

Monitored by Safety Guard, a unique integral chain management system, approximately 1.4 million calves are processed each year, more than 93% of which are exported all around the world. The VanDrie Group satisfies approximately 30% of European demand for veal.
