Manufacturer of Margarine, Oils, Fats, Soy Food, Mayonnaise and Sauces for the Food Industry
Vandemoortele is a Belgian family controlled group, whose businesses centre around bakery products and lipids. They develop, produce and market frozen bakery products as well as margarine and fats, with the products being primarily sold under private labels by retailers, as well as being marketed under Vandemoortele’s own brand names. The company started in 1899 as a single factory in Belgium, set up by Constant Vandemoortele. This small local manufacturer and supplier of soap and cattle feed grew into a national producer of edible oils. It subsequently extended into the European market, becoming a European producer of bottled oils, refined oils, crude oils, margarines, fats and mayonnaise. In 1978, the company expanded their product portfolio to include frozen bread and bakery products and in 1980 they began producing soy drinks. From 1998 onward, the companies focused on producing soy foods, lipids and bakery goods. Today they hold a leading position in Europe in the lipid and bakery product industry.
