FRANCE - Evialis has finalised the acquisition of Cargill Animal Nutrition's business in Brazil, and is streamlining its French operations.

According to a press release from the company on 17 June, Evialis confirms the closing of negotiations over the acquisition of Cargill Animal Nutrition’s business in Brazil, to include the entire Purina brand range.

This acquisition allows Evialis to become market leader in the animal nutrition sector within the Brazilian free market (3rd largest worldwide) and perfectly fits within its strategy for international expansion in target markets.

Evialis now counts nine factories across the country and markets its products through three brand names (Socil, Zoofort and Purina), through three distribution networks.

This industrial and commercial base will allow Evialis to optimize its logistical costs and extend its geographical coverage to have a better response to the needs of its stockbreeder customers. Annual revenue more than doubles to total around €130 million.

Once the organizational aspects have been finalized, this operation should generate regular profits and provide the means to capitalize on this dynamic Brazilian livestock market.

Optimisation of its Business in France

Elsewhere, in pursuit of its plan to optimize its business on the French market, Evialis has recently reorganized its operations in the Rhone-Alpes region.

Benefiting from the closure of a different site, the factory based in Saint-André (38) in France - in which the Group has been a partner within the Dauphinoise co-operative for over 30 years - has been reinforced in order to cope with an annual production of more than 100 000 tonnes, which makes it the leading factory in the region.

Evialis, international animal nutrition specialist has increased its shareholding to 50% and now takes responsibility for the operational management of the site, the General management being assumed by the Dauphinoise Group.
