Entrepreneurship runs through our veins. We owe our meticulous care for product quality and our top-notch services to Marcel Van den Berghe, who founded the company. After 20 successful years collecting and processing lard, he founded De Bavegemse Vetcompagnie (Baveco) in 1953, which supplied lard to bakers, among others.
After that, his sons started processing offal. In 1974 they set up Cominbel, which specialised in the processing of animal fats (for soap and biodiesel, among others) and the production of bone meal (used in animal feed and fertilisers, for example).
The next important step came in 1994, with the acquisition of Wouters, a wholesaler specialised in raw materials for bakeries and the production of bread-baking ingredients.
