“GBA was interested in Lavetan because of our know-how, high-level equipment, processes and professionalism,” Raf explains. The German group intends to use Lavetan to enter the Benelux market in the field of food analysis. To that end, there are plans to expand the site and recruit new employees. Currently, 92 people work at Lavetan.

GBA was keen on Lavetan's knowledge and equipment, but Raf also sees many advantages for Lavetan itself. "We have a microbiological and a serological department, but no chemical department. For this, we had to use external labs up until now. As a partner of GBA, we will now be able to handle this in-house.”
