Proximity and Excellence
Close to breeders and their issues, we are committed to delivering tailor-made products and services that are as close as possible to their concerns and challenges. Efficiency is our driving force. Satisfying our members and their breeders, knowing how to seize opportunities, anticipating, doing more, doing better, not standing still, evolving to progress, questioning: we listen to you to serve you better.
Passion and Trust
Committed and passionate, our 80 employees are unfailingly involved. Your loyalty is our pride. Simple, trusting relationships are in our DNA. We believe in the sustainability of breeding and its components, we believe that quality is the future, we believe that the search for improvement through genetics is one of the great answers to tomorrow’s challenges.
Cooperation and independence
Both internally and externally, with different yet complementary professions, the circulation of information, solidarity and a cooperative spirit are key to success. Fostering positive and constructive exchanges, being a reliable partner, building bridges between departments and activities, but also with other companies, is essential. In the sole interest of our breeders, it is just as essential to maintain our free will and use the agility allowed by the “human scale” of our structure.
