02/03/2018: AT&T global network nurtures global growth for Nutreco

Dutch company, Nutreco, a global leader in animal nutrition and aquafeed has turned to AT&T to help grow its global business

In a three year contract, Nutreco chose an integrated, global network solution. Nutreco will use their virtualised network service AT&T FlexWareSM, as well as AT&T VPN and internet access. These services run across our global network based MPLS infrastructure, which provides a highly secure global network environment.

According to Nutreco CIO, Henry van der Ven,, “Innovation is as important as cost savings and efficiencies. That’s why my team turned to AT&T, which is demonstrating technology leadership with software-defined networking.”

Nutreco has a strategy of buying new companies and organic growth. Their edge-to-edge technologies provide near real-time intelligence from every corner of Nutreco’s business, so Nutreco can sense and adapt to change. They provide a platform for future growth and innovation. AT&T FlexWare is an elegant solution for a fast, responsive and future-ready global network.

AT&T help Nutreco employees connect and share business data. They are doing this in a highly secure way, whether they work from Nutreco’s Dutch headquarters in Amersfoort or from a factory in Vietnam. Nutreco’s production sites are in multiple locations around the world.

They are providing networking connectivity solutions across all its 200 locations in Asia Pacific, North America, Europe and Latin America. These sites include 100 production plants in 35 countries; and 11 research & development centres in seven countries.

How network function virtualisation works

Nutreco will use the router function of AT&T FlexWare. It’s a virtual network function, so Nutreco doesn’t need to invest in proprietary hardware. AT&T FlexWare offers the ability to use virtualised network functions like routers, firewalls and accelerators. This will help Nutreco adapt and upgrade functions as they grow, and their needs evolve – all designed to deliver a lower total cost of ownership.
