History

Nutriprof originated from the Comptoir de Gives, founded in 1975, near Huy, Belgium.

After several times in various hands to come, in 2002 Provimi takes over the company that in the meantime received the name Protector. In 2007, Provimi moved both its own lick bin production in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and the Protector production near Huy to a completely new location in Villers-le-Bouillet, Nutriprof's current production location and office.

In 2011, Provimi was taken over by Cargill and the name Protector in Provimi Belgium NV also changed.

In 2015, the activities of Provimi Belgium NV become independent and the company becomes privately owned and continues under the name Nutriprof.
