Company Overview
Evialis SA, headquartered in St. Nolff, France, develops, produces and sells complete feed for breeders; supplies premix and other specialities associated with advice for intensive farmers, manufacturers and the farm as well as manufacturing and distributing health, hygiene and dietary products. Developing from a family-based company founded by Jean Guyomarc’h in 1954 in Vannes, Evialis is present in all livestock farming sectors in France.
Evialis’ teams of formulators develop mixtures tailored to the precise nutritional requirements of each species, both for large-scale livestock production (poultry, cattle, pigs, rabbits, etc) as well as regional specialties (e.g. ducks for foie gras), and niche products (piglets, game), feeds for the consumer market (horse feed, pet food, farmyard animals) or even for more exotic animals in some foreign countries such as songbirds in Indonesia or shrimps in Brazil and Vietnam. Each feed mixture also takes account of specific needs related to the animal’s physiological development, i.e. according to their age. It also takes account of the farmer’s technical and economic objectives depending on the market that his production is intended for.
Experts in the Evialis group’s services business provide both industrial or farm-based feed manufacturers with an advisory service associated with the supply of premix and nutritional specialties: compounding, nutritional advice, design of specific feed programs, operational marketing support and sales action support, overview of control procedures via periodic quality assessments, diagnosis and recommendations on plant technology, zootechnical and health monitoring in farms, etc. These specialists, vets and agronomists, formulators and product managers, offer a whole array of services that are tailored to the requirements of compound feed production: premix, nutritional and medical premixes, minerals, specialties, micro-ingredients and feed additives.
Evialis has manufacturing sites in 12 countries worldwide, and maintains 52 industrial sites. Its products are sold in more than 40 countries worldwide. Evialis has set itself the priority of rationalizing its business/country portfolio and focusing its resources on high potential growth centers. The company is focussing its development efforts on the most promising markets such as South Africa, Brazil and Vietnam.
