Caring for life

The best performance and ease of management
Mickael Le Helloco, CEO Novogen


We set up Novogen over ten years ago with a clear aim: to provide the best performance and ease of management, whatever your farming system or constraints.

Based on these two fundamental principles, we devised a selection programme for products that are adapted to your markets and set up local partners to boost your success.

This vision is summed up by our slogan “Caring for life”. It encapsulates the conviction that drives our team and centres around five cornerstones that underpin our focus: our Clients and Partners, our Teams, Humankind, Animals and the Planet.

Caring for humans

Fulfilling new social responsibilities

Our strains are specially selected to ensure that production is more respectful of the environment, animal welfare and human health. Our technical experts will support you to put in place sustainable solutions.

More ethical, higher-quality food

Food is fundamental to our health. Eight hundred million people are suffering from malnutrition. We are working, on our own modest scale, to provide food that is sustainable, healthy, ethical and accessible to all.

Supporting the development of local production

Our daily commitment to developing regions of the world contributes to the development of local economic activity.

Facilitating access to animal proteins

Eggs are one of the most accessible sources of animal protein, contributing to a healthy, balanced diet. Every day we work to make them more accessible by developing egg subsidiaries across the globe.

Caring for animals

Recognised calm, sociable behaviour

Our thorough selection system provides us with additional information on the behaviour of the birds in environments closely resembling field conditions, in accordance with your farming system.

High performance

Novogen strains have yielded some of the best results in the world, in terms of number of eggs, egg quality, viability and feed efficiency.

Adaptable to all environments

Feed, climate and farming system are an integral part of our selection process. We alter these factors to ensure that our strains are suited to your conditions and not the other way round.

Caring for the planet

Positive, innovative agriculture

Our genetic selection and our partnerships promote sustainable farming systems, striking a reasonable balance between the welfare of humans, animals and the planet.

Conserving natural resources

Bird selection also helps to reduce the environmental impact of poultry production, by optimising their feed.

Sustainable breeding

We are an active member of the Natural Concept, and we therefore encourage actors in the field of poultry farming to make progress in the area of sustainable production.
