De hondenkar van de bakkerij

In 1893, Klaas Schouten opened a bakery in the Burgstraat in Giessen. To make ends meet, he also started a business in animal feed, delivering his products with a dogcart. His sons Marinus, Bart and Otto Schouten expanded the business.

Nico Schouten, son and successor of Marinus Schouten, leaves the company in the seventies. Together with his sons Henk, Govert and Peter, Nico develops new activities. Advising dairy farmers on animal nutrition results in Schouten Advies, which now focuses on consultancy in the feed and food industry.

New generation

In 2006, the three brothers took over the old office building where their grandfather and father had previously worked. Back where it all started, the companies of the group continue growing. In 2018 the Schouten Groep celebrates its 125th birthday. Over 150 food and feed experts work at the four companies and the fifth generation has made its entrance at Schouten Europe, Nutrilab, Schouten Advies and Schouten Certification.
