Sofiprotéol Key Developments

Sofiproteol and LDC Plans to Develop a High-Performance French Sector, Mainly Focusing Domestic Poultry Production

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.

Deinove SA and Sofiproteol Signs Collaboration Agreement to Develop Production Process for Natural Feed Additives

DEINOVE SA and SOFIPROTÉOL reports signing a three-year collaboration agreement to develop a production process for natural feed additives. This project, named COLOR2B, is part of the DEINOCHEM program and primarily targets the animal feed market, although it also opens up opportunities in human food applications. COLOR2B is an R&D project, which aims at developing a production process for natural feed additives. This includes selecting the best-performing bacteria strains from DEINOVE's strain bank, testing the compounds produced, qualifying their benefits for animal nutrition and health as well as developing the production process at pilot-scale. DEINOVE's expertise will focus on producing additives from their bacterial micro-factories, in an eco-friendly and economically viable way. SOFIPROTEOL's expertise will apply to feedstock selection, evaluation of the beneficial effects for animals, knowledge of the market and associated regulations, as well as marketing the technology developed.
