We serve the animal protein value chain with genetic solutions in laying hens, turkeys, traditional poultry, swine, salmon, trout, and shrimp. Our organization has grown from a small family business to a global leader in animal breeding.
In order to lead forward and set the standard for sustainable breeding, we are anchored by a key group of shareholders, supervisory board members, and executive committee members.
