Over 80 years of history…
1930 was the year of the first millet harvest at the Moreau farm. It is then Joseph and Marie Joseph Moreau who are at the head of this small company that will be passed from one generation to the next ones.
Since the takeover of the company by Frédéric Moreau (4th generation) in 2010, the company, while maintening the values of the land, has evolved to new products and new brands such as Octave Bauchant, Wasabycat. It is no longer just the birds of the skies who benefit from millet crops because the range of products evolve towards the needs of small animals, chickens, reptiles, and many more.
For Frédéric Moreau, the company is not only a perpetual adventure that has lasted more than 80 years, but also a way to offer new products taking into account the new aspirations of consumers.
