The history of a family,
the vision of a Group
It all began at Les Halles in Paris, where Lucien Bigard was a young employee at a butcher shop. In 1968 his entrepreneurial spirit led him to take over his employer’s company in Quimperlé.
A human and
PASSION, FROM FATHER TO SON
In the early years he mainly devoted himself to growing his business and passing on his love of his trade to his son Jean-Paul, who joined him on the management board in 1975.
For 20 years the two men shaped the destiny of a group that is now a crown jewel of French industry. The family narrative is marked by a turning point in 1995 when Jean-Paul succeeded his father and decided to accelerate growth by initiating acquisitions that would form the cornerstones of the BIGARD Group.
Today the family history continues with the 3rd generation: the two grandsons, Mathieu and Maxence.
Their shared vision has given rise to an entirely new industrial age for the Group.
Surrounded by professionals as passionate as they are, the new management continues to develop its production equipment. They have raised their Art of Meat to an industrial scale by pairing traditional know-how and a series of pioneering innovations.
Like the signature of 3 generations, this shared taste for perfection continues to thrive at BIGARD.
