Global sourcing

Thanks to our subsidiaries in Europe and a sales presence throughout the world, we can rigorously select our suppliers and are implementing a global sourcing policy to guarantee supplies of meat and poultry, seizing market opportunities in our different distribution networks. For each animal species, we implement secure and controlled supply chains in France and Europe, in particular via our production sites and all over the world with quality controls at every stage, on the farms, in the abattoirs, with logistics tracking and product quality controls.

Secure and controlled supplies

We work on industry projects with heavy local involvement to ensure the constant quality of raw materials under the best farming conditions and with the highest standards in terms of flavour, health and safety, regularity and traceability, for meat and poultry. We rigorously select all our suppliers, French and foreign, capable of guaranteeing the volumes whilst respecting the quality and regularity of deliveries. The longevity of these partnerships means we are in phase with market changes to meet your expectations as closely as possible. We manage all administrative and customs formalities and have perfect knowledge of shipping, air and land logistics.

Integration in the French Limousin beef industry

Over many years, we have established a sustainable partnership with the best Limousin cattle farmers in the area, to best promote Limousin beef in France and around the world. All the animals are selected from many traditional qualified and labelled farms, respecting the Charter for Best Farming Practices and according to precise criteria covering feed, identification, age, conformation, animal well-being, animal health and respect for the environment.
Our unit in Limoges, CV Plainemaison, has become a benchmark for high quality Limousin beef in France thanks to promotion of the breed and selling exceptional Limousin beef through its “Or Rouge” brand. For many years, the company has also been organising Prestigious auctions, the Journées Limousines event, with high quality fed cows. In 2016, these prestigious auction sales set a European record for a fed cow, with one five-year-old auctioned for €25,000!

Traditional meat butchery and processing

All our production sites process and cut meat according to traditional butchery rules. Unlike an abattoir which sells what it produces, we buy according to customer demand, with a product offer that stems from our businesses and is really adapted to requirements. The meats are aged for more tenderness. We pay particular attention to the specifications jointly drawn up by you and our departments.
We offer products sliced to the correct thickness for the best possible cooking, with non-bevelled slicing and regular thickness for even cooking to taste (blue, rare, medium rare) with the aim of providing an identical plate for all, with guaranteed weight and controlled portion costs.

Tailor-made products and customised service

With our expertise and high-performing industrial tools, we process meat and poultry and make customised meat products for our customers, according to specifications and desired characteristics. We offer a large choice of muscles, cuts and processed products, fresh and frozen, adapted to your requirements. The locations of our production sites throughout France mean short delivery schedules, working as close as possible with our customers, and complete respect for the cold chain. We have our own Research and Development laboratory to prepare customised products and innovative recipes.
Our sales teams are at your disposal to provide advice and meet your requirements.
