Hamlet Protein appoints new area manager Benelux
January 27, 2021

Hamlet Protein continues to strengthen its commercial team. In recent months new hires were announced in focus markets around the world. With the appointment of Kurt Desmet as area sales manager Benelux, the company further confirms its commitment to customer centricity, as it invests in local resources.

Surging and volatile ingredient costs, ASF and COVID-19 are impacting the 2021 outlook for animal protein and feed producers worldwide. That does not stop Hamlet Protein from investing in people, products, and processes as the company is confident about its potential for the future.

Jan Kamphof, regional director EMEA, said that “Hamlet Protein was founded in Denmark some 30 years ago. Just like the Danish producers, Benelux producers are recognized globally for their strong production KPIs. Farmers, premixers and feed mills focus on high quality products, that translate into a strong performance of the animal. Our ambition is to become a strategic partner in young animal nutrition for producers and exporters in the Benelux.”

Kurt Desmet, Belgian, has gained experience in piglets, chicks and veal in various multinational companies throughout his career. “I am excited to join Hamlet Protein and help drive the ambitious growth agenda. Young animal nutrition is key in driving performance throughout the lifecycle of the animal and Hamlet Protein’s products have a proven track record in making a difference,” said Kurt Desmet.
