With our specialization in liquid nutritional supplements to support animal health and reduce the use of antibiotics, we improve your business profit. We develop, manufacture and supply nutritional supplements, detergents and disinfectants, chickpaper, feed overheating inhibitors, and hoofcare products.
Our business approach is focused on drinking water hygiene and liquid nutritional supplements that are mainly administered via drinking water or liquid feed. Animals drink at least twice as much as they eat. If an animal is sick or stressed, it will take less food, but keep drinking. This makes water the perfect medium for supporting animal health with nutritional supplements.
It is also possible to add our dietary supplements to the basic feed ration. In this way, we optimize your daily rations and protect the feed mixture against overheating.

This means analyzing all the links in the production process, and identifying and documenting product quality and product safety. All potential risks in this regard are appropriately controlled through prescribed procedures and instructions. All products are produced according to GMP and HACCP in our modern factory, and tested in research facilities to ensure safe products of excellent quality.

Kanters provides total solutions to the farmer. To achieve this it is important that for all kinds of situations and health issues products are present that make a positive contribution to the recovery of animal health and improve the operating result. Therefore Kanters has an extensive range of liquid nutritional supplements via drinking water.
Our products are divided into five functional groups:
- Cleaning and disimfection agents
- Support for lasting animal health
- Care products for better animal welfare
- Supporting gut health
- Promoting technical results
Within each functional group, the products may vary depending on the species, the type of animal, but also farm specific situation. Therefore, it is important that, before coming to an approach, to conduct a farm analysis first. This analysis and the subsequent farm program allows us in working together with your vet and feed supplier and to support you best.
1984 – TRADITIONALLY A BROILER FARM
In the early 1980s, Kanters started as a broiler farm with innovative ideas on reducing antibiotic use, water hygiene and promoting animal health through drinking water. The broiler farm was one of the first with a computerised management information system. This enabled Kanters to collect technical results and analyse animal performance very accurately on a daily basis. Because Kanters’ farm was one of the few farms at that time where such information could be collected, several companies from the industry came to our farm to do trials. Kanters used the information from these trials as the basis for its own product development.
1988 – ESTABLISHMENT OF KANTERS SPECIAL PRODUCTS B.V.
The innovative ideas lead to production and trade. Kanters Special Products B.V. is established.
Sales of products to various countries around the world increase. Products are exported to 25 countries.
2002 – GMP+ CERTIFICATION
Kanters complies with all laws and regulations regarding product safety and product quality. As a result we are able to receive the GMP+ certificate.
From the office next to the broiler stables on the Middenakkerweg in Beek en Donk, Kanters moves to a brand new factory at Stater 32 in Lieshout.
2011 – TNO PROJECT
In 2011, Kanters and TNO joined forces to conduct thorough research into the possibility of using natural remedies as a replacement for antibiotics in intensive livestock farming. The research should result in the rapid administration of active replacements for antibiotics. The first data were released in early 2014.
2014 – COMPLETE PROGRAMME – TOGETHER TO A HEALTHY RESULT
With its specialism in liquid feed supplements, Kanters has developed a complete programme, offering total solutions to livestock farmers. The extensive range is divided into five functional groups that make a positive contribution to restoring animal health and improving operating results.
2016 – KANTERS DAIRY SOLUTIONS
Kanters expands its activities in the cattle market. The new division, called Dairy Solutions, will focus on the deployment of products and concepts that support the current and future challenges within extensive cattle farming. Kanters Dairy Solutions was introduced at EuroTier.
2016 – KANTERS ITALIA S.R.L.
As of September 2016, Kanters has opened its first foreign branch.
For many years Kanters is already successfully present on the Italian market. As the market demands a more intensive technical and veterinary support from its suppliers, it was a logical step to establish Kanters Italia with its office in the beautiful city of Cesena.
2019 – KANTERS TECHNICS – OPTIMUS DOSING MODULE
At the end of 2019, the new Business Unit – Kanters Technics – was set up. With this we also focus on the development, production and supply of systems used in the dosing of liquid feed supplements to water and feed as well as the cleaning and disinfection of drinking water.

Advantages of liquid nutritional supplements
Sick animals keep drinking
Disease often results in a reduced feed intake, while the water intake is maintained. As a result, sick animals are easier to support via their drinking water.
Fast and appropriate intervention
Liquid nutritional supplements can be taken quickly and efficiently by adding them to the drinking water. Nutrition via drinking water is easily absorbed and readily available.
Self-determination of the period of use
The period of use can be self-determined. Efforts can be continued or stopped with one simple operation.
Housing and sections dosed separately
Animals can be separately supported by house or section. This is not usually possible in other systems, when additives are administered to the feed.
Rations are made complete
To supplement the rations or make them complete, minerals and vitamins can very easily be added via the drinking water. Animals are thus given the necessary nutrients at the right time.
Can be used preventatively as well as for acute cases
Liquid supplements are preventative as well as being used in situations where they are deployed in acute cases.
