Upstream: animal products

While the genetics and animal health sectors are becoming increasingly concentrated, Sofiproteol contributes to the emergence of global leaders firmly rooted in France and Europe.

For example, in 2008, the financing and development company acquired equity interests in the Hendrix Genetics Group, one of the global leaders in animal genetics, and in 2014, it participated in the capital reorganisation of Ceva Santé Animale.

Testimonial – Hendrix Genetics

Hendrix Genetics is a global leader in animal genetics as regards eggs for consumption, turkeys, pigs, traditional poultry and farmed fish. It thus contributes to the improved performance of livestock while optimising the use of resources.

Sofiprotéol acquired an equity stake in Hendrix Genetics in 2008 and assisted the company’s main stages of development, helping to make it one of the world’s leading businesses in animal selection.

“Thanks to its numerous connections in France’s farming and agribusiness sector, Sofiprotéol helped us speed up our growth.”
