Acquisition

Art according
to Bigard

Since purchasing Socovia in 1968, the butcher tradition and quality workmanship have guided our investments and acquisitions, making the Group a leader in the industry.

For three generations, the work of the Bigard family and our 14,000 employees has been rooted in a single raw material: pleasure. The pleasure we take, from farm to fork, in selecting, exacting, enhancing, creating, and sharing the Art of Meat with everyone who, like us, sees meat as the most beautiful of products.

At BIGARD, breeders, artisans, shopkeepers, food companies, restaurant chefs, and consumers alike find the quality, standards, and know­how of a great name in the world of meat.
