Galor History

In the 1960s, Robert Galliano, a pioneer in the guinea fowl sector, commences production of day-old guinea fowl.  Selection activities quickly develop at the Souvigny de Touraine site (Indre-et-Loire, 37). Breeding lines are created from birds selected from surrounding farms and the Drôme production basin (Drôme, 26).

1981: A new hatchery and a large selection station are created in Amboise (Indre-et-Loire, 37).

2001: The site is expanded and the existing hatchery doubles in surface area.

2007: The company is taken over by the Amice-Soquet Group and the Morini company (each holding 50% of the shares).

2009: The Amice-Soquet group obtains 100% of Morini's shares.

2013: Groupe Grimaud takes over the company's assets and creates a new legal entity: GALOR S.A.S.

2014: GALOR S.A.S. becomes the Groupe Grimaud's guinea fowl arm, taking over the Essor breeding lines and the production sites belonging to Grimaud Frères Sélection.

Today, GALOR S.A.S. produces and sells the Essor and Galor ranges as breeders and day-old guinea fowl.
