“Time flies when you have fun” they say, and that’s a fact. We still remember just like it was yesterday. when we mounted the new Intracare sign on the facade of our first humble building with a small production area in a village called Haaften. This is where our Intracare adventure kicked-off with all available knowledge and ambition but limited funds.
The first years were challenging. We had to set up everything from scratch and like a bolt from the blue, the global bird flu broke out. That was not an easy period knowing that every dime had to be turned over.
Nevertheless, we were able to impress the market fairly quickly. Our first employee was Mark van Zoggel who still works at Intracare with great enthusiasm. We immediately showed our face at international fairs, such as the Eurotier, and managed to build up a fantastic international clientele in quite a short time.
A lot has changed in the world of livestock farming. The industry is scaling up and is becoming more efficient. All this is accompanied by stricter regulations and increasing demands from our end user. We as Intracare are able to adapt and grow with this process. We attach great importance to innovations, product development and registrations and are proud to see how we play a pioneering role in this.
It's always good to look back at early history. We can write a book about it. From visiting Buckingham palace to receiving an Innovation award from Prince Philip, the beautiful friendships we have built with clients and cooperating as a beautiful and valuable club of colleagues.
