A hatchery at Gare d'Uzel in Brittany has just been acquired by Novogen, a subsidiary of the Grimaud Group. It will house Grand Parent stock production, which is distributed worldwide, and Parent stock, which is distributed throughout the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East, Africa) and Asia. 

This new production facility supplements Novogen's current installations in the U.S. and Brazil, which allow it to cover North and South America. 

“This investment represents a major milestone for Novogen's 2030 strategy. It immediately increases production capacity to nearly 4 million layers, with room for more! This is excellent news that allows us to confidently develop our activities”, explained Mickaël Le Helloco, Managing Director of Novogen. 


In close proximity to the Plédran headquarters, this hatchery will allow Novogen’s teams to fulfil its excellence strategy for the quality of delivered products using state- of-the-art equipment. 

The renovation plan that will be initiated in the coming months will ensure that the hatchery is put into operation in early summer of 2020.
