How it all started
The W Koudijs company was founded by the Koudijs family on January 1 1920 in Barneveld. Early 1928 the production of poultry feed was transferred to the ports of Rotterdam and around 1930 Koudijs started to operate internationally when the family took ownership of the Koudijs Futterfabriek B.K. A.G. in Germany.
