Founded in 1977, Nepluvi promotes the interests of the Dutch poultry processing industry in general and its members in particular. Members are specialized in the production, manufacturing and processing of poultry meat, and trade in live and slaughtered poultry.
The secretariat of the association is based in Houten, and its general assembly meets once a year and appoints a president and board members. Nepluvi has 55 members active nationally and internationally. Members account for 90 percent of the poultry meat from the Netherlands, amounting to some Euro 2 billion (US$2.55 billion).
Nepluvi is active in veterinary issues, like quality assurance and inspection, health and welfare; legal issues, both legislative and advisory; social issues; corporate social responsibility; and economic issues. It collects and distributes market information, details of pricing policies and reports on the World Trade Organization and General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade.
Contact is maintained with the Dutch government, the European Union and organizations in other European member states.
The association is a member of the Association of Poultry Processors and Poultry Trade in the EU countries, AVEC, and the International Poultry Council.
