Established 25 years ago, CHARAL SAS is now widely recognised as France’s
leading meat brand. In 2008, the company became part of the Bigard Group,
one of Europe’s leading meat industry specialists.
With 9 production sites in France, Charal has a presence in all the major French livestock farming regions. For quality assurance purposes, each Charal site complies with the most stringent quality and food safety standards; they currently lead the field in terms of quality and food safety accreditation. In addition, Charal has been awarded European Health Accreditation, checked annually by the State Veterinary Authorities.
CHARAL is the number one brand in fresh and frozen meats in France. Created in 1986 thanks to the development of a breakthrough technology in the meat industry, Hebdopack®, a natural preserving process, CHARAL has become, over the last 25 years, the French's favourite and most recognised brand of meat.
Since 2008, the Charal company is a 100% owned subsidiary of the Bigard Group. The latter is one of the largest groups in the meat industry in Europe, specialised in slaughter and meat processing (beef, pork and lamb).
