De Heus is an international producer and exporter of feeds, concentrates and premixes. Through its subsidiary Koudijs, the company exports its products in more than 50 countries in Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa and Latin America. De Heus has strategic alliances with regional players in the Chinese, Russian, Egyptian and Ethiopian feed markets through joint ventures. In Belgium, the company has a joint venture with Nukamel that specializes in processing milk ingredients for young animals. De Heus has also expanded its presence in the Brazilian market with its recent acquisition of Cerrado Nutricao, a cattle nutrition company producing feeds, concentrates, and mineral protein supplements.
Active in the agricultural products and commodities segment, De Heus performs below average compared to its peers. Due to its lack of disclosure, the company is among the weakest performers in governance and strategy and social inclusion. In environment, it has an opportunity to align with its peers by setting targets to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adopt sustainable sourcing practices for its high-risk commodities. In the nutrition measurement area, food safety and availability of healthy foods appear to be mature topics among the majority of the companies assessed in the segment. Therefore, there is room for De Heus to improve its reporting on the adoption of food safety certifications and define its contributions to address food security.
