AUSTRALIA - The French company Grimaud Freres Selection, a world leader in duck genetic selection and breeding, has reached an exclusive agreement to supply Pepe's Ducks with the Grimaud STAR duck breed in the Australian market for 10 years.

The agreement follows the successful placement of the Grand Parent STAR 53 duck at Pepe's Ducks’ operations at Windsor in Sydney’s north-west in 2010.

The 10-year agreement reflects the strong ties between Grimaud Freres Selection and Pepe's Ducks that began in 2003, reflecting the commitment of both companies to the better development of local duck meat production and consumption in Australia.

For Grimaud Freres Selection, this agreement reflects its vision for developing a sustainable relationship with a long-term client in the Oceania region.

For Pepe's Ducks, this agreement allows it to plan long-term to ensure its duck meat is of the highest quality, helping underpin its commercial advantage in the Australian market. It also provides security regarding the quality of their duck meat products, as well as helping optimize production costs because of the economic advantages presented by the STAR duck breed.

The agreement certainly gives the best guarantee for the future of Pepe's Ducks’ brand name.
