French retailer Intermarché has submitted its bid for a plant owned by ailing pork processor Gad.

The offer, made through its meat processor subsidiary SVA Jean Rozé, has been put to the commercial court in Rennes for an undisclosed sum.

Last month, Intermarché had expressed interest in the slaughtering and butchering site in Josselin. Intermarché said the site would help supply 2,000 namesake and Netto stores with French pork, while also serve the retailer’s seven deli plants.

A fortnight ago, the court in Rennes approved a move from Gad, part of French agri-food co-op Cecab, to enter into administration.

Announcing its offer yesterday (25 September), Intermarché said a “significant number” of jobs at the plant would be kept. However, it added it had started work to find possible roles in the industry for all employees at the site.
