Leading for over 45 years
Welcome to Grober Nutrition. We are a proud Canadian business. From a modest beginning in the early 1970′s, Grober has grown from a singular animal nutrition company to a dynamic agribusiness. Our high quality standards and investment in continuous research has cemented Grober Nutrition as an international supplier of excellent feeds. With Grober, we’re here to help you, RIGHT FROM THE START™!
From Humble Beginnings to Big Dreams
Our founder, Jerry Bartelse, moved to Canada from the Netherlands in 1974. At that time, he founded the Grober Group of Companies in Cambridge, Ontario. Initially a one-man operation; Jerry did it all, purchased ingredients, mixed products and made deliveries.
Today our company is much different. But the same family values continue to live on within the company Grober Nutrition has grown into.
Jerry’s philosophy and what he built this company on, is to look forward and not back, ‘because what is relevant is the future’. With this optimistic attitude, we joined the Gay Lea Foods Cooperative Ltd. in 2020, to continue growing as a dynamic international agribusiness.
Introducing New Ideas
From day one, Grober Nutrition has been committed to pushing the bar higher when it comes to raising young animals. And we practice what we preach. In 1985 Grober Nutrition and Delft Blue were the first in North America to successfully develop and implement group housing for veal calves. Today, that concept has become common practice.
