The Alliance des Viandes de France results from a partnership between Abera (Avril’s subsidiary) and Tönnies, a German family group specialized in slaughtering and preparation of beef and pork meat. The joint enterprise, located in Vire (Normandy), aims to foster the competence of both partners with an ultra-modern cutting and preparing tool. On one side, Abera brings 5F pork meat (porks born, bred, slaughtered, processed and prepared in France), notably thanks to Sanders’ feed products. On the other side, Tönnies brings his competences on prepared products. This project offers new opportunities to the French Pork sector, in order to recapture the French internal market.
