Ferm O Feed and Plant Health Cure (PHC) have merged, as of 30 January 2023. Both business units will continue together under the name Den Ouden GrowSolutions.
Ferm O Feed has been part of the Schijndel family business Den Ouden for almost thirty years now. PHC has been a part of Den Ouden since 2021. Both business units specialize in soil improvement and fertility, and offer solutions to stimulate plant growth (GrowSolutions). Ferm O Feed develops organic fertilizers and biostimulants and distributes them to 75 countries worldwide. PHC is an expert and leader in the field of mycorrhizal technology and soil biology. This organization supplies vegetable fertilizers, useful soil fungi and bacteria that make soil and plants resilient and allow them to function better.
"We are now combining the strengths of two comparable business units into one powerful team," the company explains. "We connect commerce and the international network Ferm O Feed has built with valuable knowledge about products and applications from PHC. We will become a one-stop-shop with one point of contact for all services, expertise and product (application) regarding soil and plant improvement instead of two points of contact."
At this moment, the merger concerns the registration of the merger and the name change. The merger means that the business units Ferm O Feed and PHC will jointly continue under the name Den Ouden GrowSolutions. The former trade names will continue to exist as they are.
"Our product portfolio will also remain the same. Existing trade agreements, contracts, price agreements and other agreements remain valid. Current account numbers will continue to apply for payments and invoicing. As soon as these change, we will communicate this to you," they point out.
