The BEVIMAC group 


Since 25 years, BEVIMAC is exporting cattle and has obtained its role as unchallenged leader for the export of AUBRAC breed. Also, it has become a key player of other breeds, such as CHAROLAIS, SALERS and LIMOUSIN, within few years. 

 

The production of the cooperatives is :

Controlled, because contract-based. More than 2000 breeders come together with their cooperatives to dedicate their production to export markets.

Favouring direct sales and trying to keep the number of intermediaries as low as possible.

Additionnaly, the Union of cooperatives BEVIMAC CENTRE SUD buys every year, through BEVI D'OC, around 30 000 cattle for export. 

Every year around 130 000 cattle are exported to European and Third Countries :

  • The Union of Cooperatives BEVIMAC CENTRE SUD, which combines three large scale cooperatives located in the centre of the region Massif Central, exports directly 100 000 cattle per year.
  • The SAS BEVI D’OC handles all purchases realised complementarily to the contributions from the cooperative members.
  • The SA UNEC, a commercial company in Saône et Loire, whose reference shareholder is the BEVIMAC Group.
