Valorex (Combourtillé, 120 employees, €80M turnover in 2015) produces livestock feed based on natural plants rich in Omega 3. The company has developed a patented manufacturing process which it intends to apply in more factories.
The Valorex brand is currently rolled out in seven animal nutrition production sites. Five are in France, including one at Combourtillé at the company’s head office, supplemented by two more in Germany and Switzerland. Valorex is ultimately targeting about thirty sites.
The Valorex technologies are protected by twelve separate patents for the baking-extrusion of oil and protein crop seeds produced in France.
