European companies Hendrix Genetics B.V. and Grelier Holding s.a.s. have joined forces to investigate the possibility of partnering in a poultry breeding and distribution venture.


Hendrix currently operates as a multi-species breeding company that works with layers, pigs and turkeys. Grelier focuses on breeding, multiplication and hatchery activities with turkeys, chickens and guinea-fowl. The companies expect to make a final decision by mid-2011.
