Sofiprotéol Key Developments
Sofiproteol and LDC Plans to Develop a High-Performance French Sector, Mainly Focusing Domestic Poultry Production
Oct 20 14
Sofiproteol and LDC announced that they are planning to develop a high-performance French sector, with being more focused on domestic poultry production. Both the partners aims to reconquer the domestic poultry market through development of French production, thereby reducing the share of imports which presently stands at 42%; to strengthen LDC's position as a major player in the European poultry industry; to strengthen Sanders' position in areas such as animal nutrition and production; and to enable their concerted international development. The planned cooperation between LDC and Sofiproteol will be illustrated in Brittany through the sale of the poultry slaughter and processed products activities of Sofiproteol's Animal Products Division to LDC, which means five production sites having a turnover of 310 million and employing nearly 1,000 people. The acquired sites will further be merged with the six LDC sites in Brittany, thereby establishing a new company: Societe Bretonne de Volaille. LDC also plans to acquire the site in Blancafort, achieving turnover of 20 million and employs 125 people, its supply being assured by the Clemont site (Sanders Animal Nutrition). At all concerned sites, nearly 100 million will be invested during the next five years.
