The Group is also expanding in its historical
scope of operations, aided by successful diversification in
high-demand categories such as the Tubular range in livestock
equipment, wear parts with the development of the STEROK brand, and
the Clothing & Footwear range.
Farming Nutrition: cyclical downturn in
exports due to the health crisis
The Farming Nutrition business, under the
Alphatech brand, posted a decline due to the temporary impacts of
the rise in bird flu cases in Southeast Asian countries combined
with the conditions brought on by the COVID-19 health crisis, which
continued to adversely affect export trade given that Alphatech
earns more than 50% of its revenue outside France.
During the first half, Yann Renouel was
appointed CEO of Alphatech.
Yann is 55 years old, graduated from ONIRIS
(Nantes-Atlantic National College of Veterinary Medicine, Food
Science and Engineering) and earned a Master’s degree in
Agri-Business Industries Management from Edhec. He worked for 10
years at Houdebine/Nestlé Group before joining Glon Sanders Group
in 2000 to take over management of Farmor. Yann Renouvel built and
headed Glon’s processed products division, which became Avril in
2012 and comprised Michel Robichon, RVE and Farmor. He also ran the
“Pork” branch (Abera, Porc Gros and AVF) and “Eggs” branch (Matines
and Ovoteam) from 2013 to 2017 as “CEO - Processing - Animal
Sectors". In 2017, he joined the Le Gouessant cooperative to head
up the Plants/Animals Division before taking over management of
Alphatech from February 2021.
He was recently joined by Sylvain Lagadou,
appointed Head of Sales for Alphatech, who previously served as CEO
of Deltavit Group, a subsidiary of CCPA Group, an international
expert in animal health and nutrition.
Together, they will be tasked with building up
the reputation of the Alphatech brand and accelerating its sales
once the health situation stabilizes.
In the second half of 2021, the Group is
confident that sales momentum will continue, driven by a constant
innovation capacity that anticipates the needs of its markets,
paving the way for new client acquisition and higher average cart
check-outs. WINFARM will also benefit from the acquisition of BTN
Haas in July, a new milestone in its European acquisition strategy,
setting it on the path to become a key international player.
