Exemplary quality from Farm to Factory
Immortal Investment BV was founded in early 2012. The company is a 100% owned subsidiary of Netherlands based Immortal BV. The creation of Immortal Investment BV was an expression of Cetra’s strategic drive to move beyond its historical core business: the provision of raw materials to the European compound feed industry. This had already entailed a number of purchases of internationally active companies in the food and feed ingredient specialties, as well as brown field new companies, such as Immortal Investment BV.
Cefetra itself is part of BayWa Ag, a listed company, based in Munich. BayWa Ag, founded in 1920, has its roots in the German agricultural sector. The company has a dominant position in agriculture and agricultural machinery, renewable and classical energy, building materials, and global fruit and produce trade. This has resulted in a truly international footprint, including activities in the Gulf region and the African continent.
Immortal Investment BV has been founded with the backing of a well-resourced, very diverse and internationally active Group, which is keen to implement its strategy through companies that have similar focus and drive.
Prior to becoming part of the Cefetra Group, Immortal Investment BV commercial and management team accumulated many years of industry knowledge, in several industry leading companies. More recently, Immortal Investment BV core staff, including key staff in the Immortal Investment BV sourcing countries, had worked together as a group.
