A family story

  1. In 1964, Mister Constant Van Dyck started a commercial activity in the area of biscuits, industrial pastries, sweets and chocolates.

    Based on his growing experience he had a visionary look and started to expand the promotion of biscuits
    and confectioneries on the Belgian and neighbouring markets. Over the years, the children of Mister
    Constant Van Dyck (Anita, Rudy, Werner and Marc) have joined this activity.

  2. Created in 1971, Probisco international is the first company of the future Arwem Food Group holding and remains the strategic partner and coordinator of different European companies in the area of biscuits, chocolates, sweets, breads (substitutes), pastries and snacks.

    Probisco is permanently sourcing new products, financing new developments and, with a growing staff, looking for the right distribution channels according to its partners requests.

  3. Since 1985, Mr. Werner and Mr. Marc Van Dyck are the managers and their children (Yannick, Dimitri, Julie and Mike) joined the company as well.

    In the early nineties, the Arwem family holding was created and several distribution companies set up in Western Europe.

  4. Since 2008, all food activities are integrated in the Arwem Food Group holding, a 3 generation family company with a significant experience in the food sector.
