Groupe Grimaud takes over guinea fowl genetics company Galor
Existing guinea fowl activities of Groupe Grimaud will be regrouped within Galor
Galor now becomes the branch of Groupe Grimaud specialized in guinea fowl, alongside all the other specialized subsidiaries of the group: Hubbard for broilers, Novogen for layers, Grimaud Frères Sélection for waterfowls and pigeons, Choice Genetics for swine, Hypharm for rabbits, and Blue Genetics for shrimp.
All the existing guinea fowl activities of Groupe Grimaud will rapidly be regrouped within Galor. This will in particular include 'Essor', the guinea fowl strains currently owned by Grimaud Frères Sélection.
Galor will operate out of three French sites, its two original locations of Amboise and Souvigny complemented by Grimaud Frères Sélection's former guinea fowl selection center located in La Rivrais. This will ensure the continuity of the selection program under the leadership of Galor which will now offer the Galor as well as the Essor products to the guinea fowl production industry.
Enrique Pellejero, who recently joined Groupe Grimaud, will become CEO of Galor and will be based in Amboise.
