Volac was founded in 1970 and says it is now Europe’s largest processor of whey protein. Half of its sales are for human consumption, and are used in products sold in the global sports health and food markets. The remaining sales come from the animal nutrition sector. Volac supplies Europe’s leading protein products manufacturers, and international sales reached £64.7m in 2012. Chief executive James Neville, 46, leads the family firm, which is now being run by the third generation.
