Our Shareholders

The Group’s rapid and profitable growth and its continuous efforts to improve performance in all areas are our two vectors of value creation. In the choices we make day to day, we give priority to those actions that generate the most value for the shareholders, whose commitment to the Malteurop Group is for the long term.

Vivescia Industries which owns 100% of Malteurop Groupe, is an agri-industrial group owned by agricultural cooperatives, financial partners and 2,300 individual shareholders. Oriented toward the agri-industries, Vivescia Industries’s business is bio-based processing of plant matter using a range of processes and for a variety of markets.

Vivescia Industries’s shareholders have thorough knowledge of the malt industry and a good understanding of its specific issues.

The grower members of the shareholder cooperatives, committed for the long term to barley growing, operate in the northeast quadrant of France, where the soil and climate are well suited to growing brewing barley. These cooperatives have committed capital to the processing of barley into malt.

Together they represent a major agricultural and logistical entity, collecting more than 13 million tons of cereal grains, including more than 3 million tons of barley.

Their total storage capacity is some 10 million tons of grain, using more than 1,000 silos.

They employ more than 6,200 people working to meet the needs of some 49,000 grower members.
