Han Laumen


Han joined AFB International’s European leadership team in 2008, bringing with him nearly 25 years of pet food industry experience. Prior to AFB, he held research and development, and quality assurance positions in the pet food and animal feed industries. Since 1999, he has served in various leadership roles in Dutch industry associations, including those for pet food producers and the animal feed production chain.

As AFB’s European research and development director, Han collaborates with the R&D team at the company’s St. Charles, Missouri, USA, headquarters, to bring to market new pet food palatants and related products designed to deliver results for AFB customers. His keen ability to address customer needs has resulted in strong working relationships with those in the industry he serves.

Han enjoys spending time with his wife and three daughters around his farmhouse, built circa 1845. The farm also is home to a wide range of pets, including dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, guinea pigs, parakeets and koi fish.
