Frank D'Hondt is the new Managing Director at OVOCOM since 1st September

From the new OVOCOM offices in the heart of Brussels, Frank D'Hondt, the new Managing Director since September 1, 2021, tells more about himself, OVOCOM and FCA.


New Managing Director

"After my business studies in Brussels, I ended up in the food world by chance. At Vandemoortele (oils and fats) they were looking for an export manager to explore new markets after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Those were very intense and challenging times. It turns out that we are actually going to relive this period in this post-Corona era". This father of 3 children has gained international experience in sales, business development and in leading teams in the food and feed sector.



This year OVOCOM has been working hard to set up a new digital platform. Together with the introduction of a CRM-system, we are going to provide an e-learning platform. "Our training courses will obviously still continue, but soon we will also offer to our clients/members the possibility to choose digital versions on the FCA Academy. During the Covid pandemic, everyone had to adapt to virtual meetings, and this is an option that we are now fully committed to further develop with the team," says D'Hondt. Together with the outgoing Managing Director Bart Verhulst, who already started this important project in 2020, OVOCOM wants to be able to offer e-learning by the end of this year.



Our OVOCOM mission statement “Together for safety and quality” must therefore be able to continuously adapt to new realities, such as digital transformation, globalization, and other trends." D'Hondt therefore sees this as one of the key points under his leadership. "Ultimately, we need to ensure with the entire team that in this ever faster changing world, there is a modern FCA standard that all Belgian and international stakeholders are happy to adopt."
