More than 50 years at the service of quality

Jean Puigrenier

The Puigrenier company was founded in 1976 by Jean PUIGRENIER. Born into a family of breeders and butchers, Jean PUIGRENIER started the company by running a cutting plant for French beef. The company developed a special relationship with the breeders and cooperatives of the surrounding regions.

Recognised for the quality of its regional beef, the company experienced sustained growth in the sale of raw products. In the mid-1980s, his son, Hervé PUIGRENIER, joined the company and took over the development of the 100% family adventure. Faced with growing demand, the activities were rapidly expanded and product innovation was placed at the heart of the company's strategy.

The company has segmented its product offer around 4 main outlets:

  • Supermarkets and hypermarkets
  • Out-of-home catering
  • Retail butchers
  • International

The company specialises in beef breeds with a 100% integrated production tool (slaughtering, boning, cutting, trapping, processing).

It is recognised for the quality of its meats and its innovative strength with several awards won: GRES D'OR 2012, LSA 2014, SIAL 2016, SIRHA 2017 and SIRHA 2019.

"Since my father founded the company in 1976, its vocation has been to supply quality meat. For this, our geographical location, the region of Auvergne in France, at the heart of the meat breeds area, is our main asset.

And it is thanks to the various investments made in recent years and the constant search for innovation that we are able to add value to the animals raised in our region. The professionalism of our staff and the expertise of our breeders are the most important factors in the company."
