History & Experience

Devenish Feeds, founded in 1952 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, provided products and services to the agricultural sector mainly through home mixers and the feed industry in the Irish market. Since then, Devenish has developed from being a trading based company to one in which over 90% of our sales are now derived from our own manufactured products.

Our current management team acquired the company in 1997 and changed the company name from Devenish Feeds to Devenish Nutrition. Devenish Nutrition's strategy is to grow the business substantially across multiple species and geographical boundaries. This strategy has been driven by major investments in plant & machinery and human resource. Substantial investments continue to be made in our research and development and technical capabilities, resulting in a more complete and value driven service to our customers. Devenish Nutrition has also introduced a number of innovative specialised products which are developed and manufactured in house.

As part of our strategy to grow across geographical borders, Devenish Nutrition acquired two manufacturing plants in the US with the capability to replicate what we do in our home market business. We have locations in Maquoketa, Iowa and Fairmont, Minnesota as well as a number of key distributors throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle and Far East.

Today we manufacture well in excess of 1,500 metric tonnes per week across three production sites, which are sold and delivered to over 40 countries worldwide and to over 20 states within the US.
