Who are we?

Malting, milling, frozen bakery, maize processing, animal nutrition, research and biotechnologies… VIVESCIA Industries specialises in multiple grain-processing businesses. Each of our business units is a company working in a specific sector, mainly in the B2B food industry. However, some of our companies have brands that are well known by the general public, such as Francine flour and Campaillette bakeries in France, and Délifrance on international markets.

VIVESCIA Industries, the Cooperative spirit in action 

Early in the 20th century, farmers from the North-East of France joined forces to create cooperatives to collect, store, and sell their grain. Without a major maritime trading port in their region from which to transport and export their grain, they decided to process it locally, as close as possible to their farms. They built malt houses and mills…

At the turn of the millennium, five regional cooperatives in turn joined forces to further consolidate their business model: They consolidated their industrial assets in grain processing, thereby enabling themselves to support the growth of major food companies in France and the rest of Europe.
Gradually, they began to invest in the companies that turned their grain into food, mainly bread, viennoiserie products and cakes. As their markets and customers became more international, they set out to conquer new territories, first in Europe and then all over the worlds.

Thanks to their upstream ties with cooperative farmers and the VIVESCIA Cooperative, VIVESCIA Industries’ companies contribute to the growth of specialist wheat/flour/bread and barley/malt value chains.
