Fabien De MeesterFabien De Meester, Ph.D., was until recently the President & CEO of the Luxembourg-based family-owned group BNLfood (www.bnlfood.com), formerly Belgian-based Belovo SA, Egg Science & Technology. The brand ‘Belovo’ stands for ‘Belgian Egg’ (Latin translation).
The group has specialised itself in the fractionation of eggs into value-added ingredients for the Food, Infant Food, Cosmetic and Pharmaceutical Industries. In addition, the company has developed the Columbus Concept (www.columbus-concept.com), a program that pioneers “wild-type lipid nutrition”, ie balanced essential dietary/plasma fatty acid ratio and healthy dietary/blood cholesterol.
Dr. De Meester is a PhD in Protein Chemistry from the University of Liège (ULg) in Belgium. He was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Weizmann Institute of Science (WIS) of Israel where he specialized in Molecular Biology. Then, he returned to Belgium, studied for an Executive Master Degree in General Management (CEPAC) at the Solvay Business School (SBS) and finally joined the family company at the age of 30 where he initially led the Research-Development-Production departments while reshuffling the management of the company onto modern ISO-standards. In early 99, upon retirement of his father, he became the President & CEO of the Belovo company and on 1st January 2006 the BNLfood group was established. On 1st May 2009, he decided to step down from d2d management at BNLfood and to create his own venture, DMF, to further develop and promote his ideas on the market.
His goals and strategy are to catalyse sustainable changes in the Egg/Food Industry towards the inception of a modern Science- & Technology–led Business in the Global Economy.
Dr. De Meester has published over 50 research articles, patents and communications on topics related to Organic Chemistry, Enzymology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Food Science & Business, and has organized a series of international workshops on the Columbus Concept. He has recently launched a 2-D concept of holistic health (www.tsimtsoum.net) that studies body-mind interactions at chrono-biological level.
Dr. De Meester is author of the European Patent PCT WO (EP07102973.0) “Method For The Prevention Of Chronic Inflammation-Associated Degenerative Diseases”, which is the result of a 20-yr commitment to the field of lipids and fatty acids, their physiologic role in human, the importance of their relative proportion in diet and blood (Omega-6 Status), and their health-related outcomes. An ever growing number of people around the world resume with health and active life following his kind advice on how to avoid degenerative diseases.
Dr. De Meester keeps on improving human health through innovative psycho-somatic approaches including the study of vascular rhythms.
