Founded in 1970 to make nutrition products for lambs and calves, Volac then expanded into the sports, health and food markets, which now contribute half of all sales. The third-generation family firm is led by chief executive James Neville, 47, alongside brothers David, 45, and Mark, 39. The Hertfordshire company also sells whey protein products direct to consumers under its brand The Good Whey Co.
