Analysis of strengths

The VanDrie Group plays an important role in the European veal chain and food supply. In addition, we want to be a good, attractive employer and good cooperation partner for customers, suppliers and veal farmers. In our chain, we know that we must collaborate. We are dependent on so many different parties. When carrying out our regular activities and strategy, we encounter various challenges, such as the shortage of work capacity and the competitive labour market. Threats also arise: the effect of changing legislation or the scarcity of raw materials and high costs in the production chain.

 It is important to identify the internal and external factors that affect our company, so that we can exploit opportunities and minimise threats. We have described how we deal with threats in our Due Diligence approach.





Integral chain management

Environmental impact still too high

Apply smart technology and innovation

Violation of human rights in the value chain

Financially strong organisation

Innovation takes time

Global demand for animal proteins is increasing

Breaches of information security

Spreading of risk across sales markets and channels

Recalls if products do not comply

Further increase circularity and eco-design within the chain (improving the sustainability of products)

Unlawful behaviour, such as corruption or fraud

Adaptive organisational culture

A relatively large number of agency employees

Commitment to use of alternative raw materials

Not managing to recruit enough well-trained staff

Collaborations with knowledge partners and stakeholders


Changing legislation with an impact on the form, organisation or size of the production chain (e.g. in the case of the tackling of nitrogen in the Netherlands)


Rising chain cost price (due to inflation, energy and raw material prices)


Incidents regarding animal welfare
