In 2020, VDL Agrotech took its first steps in insect feeding systems. Since then, the company has worked hard to expand its organisation and product portfolio. This has resulted in the establishment of the business unit VDL Insect Systems by VDL Groep.
VDL Insect systems contributes in making the feed and food sector more sustainable through the development of “Standard Smart Solutions and Systems” for insect production. It offers insect growers the possibilities to produce cost-efficient against classic protein sources by offering technology and equipment to solve its production challenges.
Geert Poels started as business development manager in September 2021. The team also includes a number of project engineers and where necessary knowledge and manpower are acquired from other VDL companies, such as VDL Agrotech.
The company brings biology, physics, high-tech knowledge and craftsmanship together in smart and reliable solutions. Based on its versatile and modular approach, it provides solutions for different production phases and all factory capacity sizes.
"I am very pleased to develop the business unit VDL Insect Systems as an organisation and to contribute to making the feed and food sector more sustainable by offering insect breeders the opportunity to produce efficient on a large scale.
With the support and knowledge of VDL Groep and the strong motivation within our team we will make this a great success. At this moment we are focusing on the development and delivery of equipment and exploring new area’s for further innovations. Our goal is to grow VDL Insect Systems into a fully-fledged organization within the VDL Groep," says Poels.
In our product portfolio, we distinguish between standard solutions (Standard Smart Solutions and Systems) and custom solutions (Custom Engineering and Manufacturing).
With the Standard Smart Solutions and Systems we focus on black soldier fly and mealworms. You can think of solutions for the feed plant, climate, crates, logistic handling and washing.
