De Pardieu Brocas Maffei has advised Soufflet Group, a French family group in food and agriculture of international scale, on the entry into exclusive negotiations with InVivo Group regarding the acquisition of 100% of Soufflet Group’s capital by InVivo Group, a leading national French agricultural cooperative group operating in several key countries.

This combination would pave the way for the creation of a French champion in agriculture and agribusiness with an international footprint;

The combination of their largely complementary activities would allow InVivo Group and Soufflet Group to maintain their organization by activities as well as their consistencies, positionings and respective identities in the long term;

The new Group would be well-positioned to address the challenges of food sovereignty, competitiveness and sustainable development of French agriculture and the agribusiness sectors.
