PDM Group

Making something useful out of animal parts that humans won’t eat may not be the most glamorous business, but the Doncaster rendering firm Prosper De Mulder had sales of £146.1m in 2004. Export restrictions on products such as meat-and-bone meal have hit the firm’s profits, but owner and chief executive Anthony Mulder has recently invested to improve its pet-food operation.
