Agrial, the agri-food co-operative, is to acquire the Brittany-based charcuterie firm Tallec, according to a report in Les Echos.
Headquarterted in Bannalec, Tallec manufactures traditional ham, terrines and pate, generating €37 million ($44 million) in annual revenue. It operates from two factories and employs around 200 staff.
Commenting on the move, Agrial corporate relations director Michel Marielle said: “Our aim is to form a charcuterie division made up of family firms with premium products principally designed for deli counters in major retail chains”.
Agrial’s purchase of Tallec is the latest of a series investments in the charcuterie space. The firm recently acquired Brient, a Rennes-based producer of sausages and pates, and is also the owner of Maitres Jacques, which specialises in the manufacture of roast meats.
