history van Hessen

As the SARIA Group, we create value for our partners and the environment by acting as a reliable service provider and manufacturer of quality products for the agricultural, energy, animal feed, food, catering and pharmaceutical industries. Our extensive product and service portfolio is based on the transformation of animal by-products and organic residues into high-quality raw materials for new applications. This enables scarce natural resources to be conserved at many levels. Accordingly, our business model makes an important contribution to environmental sustainability.

Van Hessen
Founded in 1902 as a family owned company, the Van Hessen Group evolved into one of the world’s leading and reputable companies in the field of natural casings. The growth of Van Hessen was both organic, as well as through acquisition. Next to being one of the leading casing companies, Van Hessen has also been active as a processor of animal by-products and provides high-quality raw materials to the pharmaceutical industry.

By combining the passion and knowledge of our people, our positions in purchase, processing of casings and sales markets, our worldwide gutrooms and our product groups, we aim to be your preferred partner by constantly delivering the best product and the best services.
