New name for Mol diervoeding: Malanico!
The name Mol diervoeding has been changed per September 5 to Malanico. The growth, internationalisation and future vision are the cause for the change of the company name to Malanico. The name Malanico reflects the current modern character and our presence as a big player on the domestic and international market of distribution in the pet industry.
Since last month, we have been providing service to a large retail organisation, using crossdocking to deliver folder products. The retail organisation has over 100 independent stores who distribute this folder monthly. The various suppliers deliver all the products to our warehouse in Nieuwleusen, where they are combined into one order and delivered to the retailers. Order processing, order picking, and distribution are all fully taken care of by Malanico. This allows the stores and the retail organisation to focus on their core business.
This year marked the 56th time that Dalvo organised the company volleyball tournament. The employees of Mol diervoeding also took part in this fun and sporting tournament. Due to many applications, we even entered 2 teams this year. After last year’s championship and following promotion to the highest division, this year would prove to be a challenge for team 1. The results were rather surprising, as last year’s promotion did not stop us from becoming the champion this year too! Overall, we have had many sporting and fun evenings where we really worked together as a team!
Successful trade fair participation
Last Sunday and Monday, we have presented Mol diervoeding on the Anido in Kortrijk for the Belgian market. With our large, fancy and professional stand, we had a good spot at the centre of the trade fair. There were many interested visitors and we received multiple positive reactions regarding Mol diervoeding as newcomer on the Belgium market. Together with the representatives of the brands who shared the stand with us, we have enthusiastically and professionally addressed all the visitors, some of whom had already read about us in the Pet & Garden Pro or on our website.
The eye catcher of our stand was the Wall of Fame, the wall behind the bar showcasing 140 of our brands and which attracted almost every visitor. Thanks in part to all the visitors and our suppliers for making this a very successful trade fair participation!

Yearly warehouse inspection
Today, our warehouse has been inspected again by the Inspection Institute for Safe Warehouses (Keuringsinstituut Voor Veilige Magazijnen). KVVM is an independent inspection company that deals with warehouse safety. This inspection takes place yearly, in addition to our own periodical internal inspections, to check if our warehouse is still safe. It is important to us to meet all legal requirements and we take it a step further, so that we can offer a safe and optimal workplace for our employees. Multiple inspections take place, such as inspecting the various kinds of warehouse racking and floors. The inspection of the racking material is executed according to the current Dutch (Building Act and Working Conditions Act) and European regulations.

E-packing slip via Valk
Valk Software and Mol diervoeding have joined efforts this month to realise a new electronic packing slip. This will make it easier for shopkeepers to manage their inventory. Once in stock, you can remain in stock by registering your received products. This is extra easy with the electronic packing slip from Mol diervoeding. This saves time in the shop that is better spent on helping your customers. Thanks to the net purchase prices on the slip, your margin overviews become even clearer.
How does the Mol diervoeding electronic packing slip work? The night before the delivery to the shop, the slip is readied automatically by Mol diervoeding. Valk Software collects it, translates the slip to a format you can read and puts it in your inbox. During the night time process, the packing slip is downloaded automatically and read into your cash register system. You do not have to do anything. So if you receive a shipment from Mol diervoeding today, the packing slip is already available for you. After checking it, it can be entered into your supply with the press of a button.
Should the packing slip not be available in your ProPOSS system, you can collect it through JDS and read it in. If you work with ASPOS, the packing slip will be available among your receipts. Should you prefer not to receive the electronic packing slip, that is no problem. Send an e-mail to email@example.com stating you do not want to receive the electronic packing slip from Mol diervoeding and they will turn off the packing slip. For more information about the electronic packing slip, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, They are happy to advice you.
