Technical department team leader

Who are we?

Vobra Special Petfoods is a real family business with a proud tradition. We have been making food for dogs and cats for 90 years. Think of our consumer brands, products specifically for the veterinarian or other companies’ own brands. Whatever we make or supply, Vobra stands for exceptional quality, both nationally and internationally. Our secret recipe? That is the passion and care with which we work, every day. We aim for happy, healthy pets and satisfied customers. We are happy to go the extra mile for them. We like to work hard. But with us, there is also room for Brabant-style sociability and playing a game of table tennis!
