Flamingo Pet Products nominated as Trends Gazelle 2023 

Update: The Trends Gazelles for the province of Antwerp have been announced! We are immensely proud to have ranked 17th out of 250 nominees. Trends Gazelles are fast-growing companies that play an important role in their region’s economy and job opportunities. We are happy to be recognized as an inspiring role model for other companies because of our strong growth rates in added value, staff and cash flow.

Being crowned a Trends Gazelle is cherished by the corporate world for its national exposure and regional recognition. That is why we are proud of our achievement of finishing 17th. This recognition is testament to the hard work and dedication of our teams, and we will continue to focus on growth and innovation in the years to come. Of course, this would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of our employees, customers and suppliers. And for this, we thank you!


We are proud to announce that we have been nominated for the Trends Gazellen award in the category ‘large companies’ in the province of Antwerp.

Each year, Trends Magazine rewards the fastest-growing companies in Belgium. They nominate 250 companies per province. This is based on hard growth figures:

  • Growth in added value
  • Growth in staff
  • Growth in turnover

The 250 nominated companies are competitive, innovative and have a positive impact on the business environment. Needless to say, we are proud to be one of those 250 companies.

The company with the best score may call itself a Trends Gazellen Ambassador for a year and will be honoured. All other companies receive the Trends Gazelle 2023 nomination certificate.

Flamingo Pet Products as a fast-growing company

With the Trends Gazellen, we show that Flamingo continues to grow. This is also reflected in our figures:

  • Flamingo was founded in 1972 by Renée Van Tendeloo. We soon grew from a small bird shop to a wholesaler of bird products. A few years later, the Flamingo range became more and more extensive and over time, products for other animal groups were added to the range. We now have a range of more than 8,500 products that we distribute in 55 countries.
  • We recently celebrated our 50th anniversary and celebrated with our 176 employees. That is 53 employees more than 2 years ago.
  • This year we also launched our brand new B2B-web shop, where our professional customers can shop to their heart's content.
  • In 2023, we will move to a new headquarters and warehouse where we will have even more space to grow.

What are the next steps?

On 29/03/2023, the winner of the Trends Gazellen for the province of Antwerp will be chosen. We are already looking forward to the award ceremony!

Of course, this would not have been possible without the trust and hard work of our employees, customers and suppliers. Therefore, a big thank you for the trust over the past years!
