Arjan Pitlo


Prior to joining AFB International in 2011, Arjan studied food technology at the University of Applied Sciences, The Netherlands, and worked in the European food flavor industry focusing on dairy and sweet applications. Today he is technical services manager at AFB’s European headquarters in Oss, The Netherlands.

Arjan works with AFB customers, assisting them with palatant and product formulation decisions, as well being a sparring partner regarding pet food production issues. He says it’s rewarding to provide technical support that helps customers successfully achieve their goals. As a member of the AFB research and development team, Arjan works to proactively develop new insights and products to stay ahead of the game in the ever-evolving pet food industry.

Arjan, his wife and their two children enjoy spending time outdoors walking in the forest near their home with dog Haddock, a retriever/boxer mix. In his free time, Arjan also restores vintage Italian and German cars to sell them at exhibitions, like his latest project—a 1972 Alfa Romeo.
