History of  VDM Diervoederfabriek

VDM Diervoederfabriek BV is a family company (four generations) and was founded in 1898. It sold many products needed by the farming industry. Klaas van der Meer took over the company after World War II. He managed the company until 1984, after which his son Jacob took over leadership. In the mid-nineteen sixties, Klaas van der Meer relocated the company to Drachten. Because he shortened his name, Van Der Meer, to VDM in his correspondence, this soon became the official name of the company. Since that time, VDM has been focusing exclusively on the production and sale of Cavom and the preparation of premixes.

Healthy dogs with Cavom

In our kennel we carry only Cavom. Because of the great variety of products that Cavom delivers we have always the right food in the house for any dog. Even dogs with allergies respond very well to the natural diet. Our customers are always satisfied with how their dog looks after staying with us. We often advise our clients therefore to shift also to a natural diet of Cavom.
