Doux SA, Europe’s largest chicken processor, is for sale, Le Parisien reported, citing the company’s court-appointed administrator.
The company, 80 percent owned by the Doux family, has close to 430 million euros ($540 million) in debt, the newspaper reported. Administrator Regis Valliot said the state of the firm’s treasury forced him to look for a buyer, according to Le Parisien.
