Hamlet Protein appoints Area Manager Benelux

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 we are confident about our potential for the future.

Jan Kamphof, Regional Director EMEA, commented: “Hamlet Protein was founded in Denmark some 30 years ago. Just like the Danish producers, Benelux producers are recognized globally for their strong production KPI-s. 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.

“Research shows that the inclusion of high-quality ingredients in starter and pre-starter feeds results in improved gut health, better digestion and absorption of feed components and a stronger immune system. That is why we say that a good start makes all the difference,” concluded Kamphof.


Providing the right nutrition in the first life stage determines the overall lifetime performance of the animal. Our soy-based specialty ingredients improve health, welfare and performance of young animals. That is how we deliver a strong return on investment to producers around the world.
