FRANCE: More consolidation in pork sector

French farming co-operatives Terrena and Pigalys, part of Unicopa, have announced the merger of their pork processing activities.

French farming co-operatives Terrena and Pigalys, part of Unicopa, have announced the merger of their pork processing activities.


The new entity will process more than 2.2m pigs annually and generate a combined turnover of EUR330m (US$47.54m).  


Under the terms of the agreement, Terrena could also take a stake in Unicopa’s cold meats branch Brocéliande ALH, a EUR250m business that marketed 53,000 tonnes of charcuterie in 2007.


The Terrena-Pigalys deal comes shortly after the mutually-agreed departure of co-op Arca from the Terrena group following disagreements over Arca’s merger with France’s leading pork processor Cooperl.
