The dream of a visionary pioneer
In 1952, in a small town of Brittany in France, a simple miller called Jean Guyomarc'h launched his company specialized in food products for poultry. His vision that was about to revolutionize French habits of consumption was inspired by Americans who were eating turkey all year long. He then was the 1rst in France to launch edible product formats made from poultry which could easily be distributed in supermarkets: the commercial brands "Père Dodu" and "Galina" were born.
An avant-garde approach to sustainability
Frugal by nature and culture, Jean Guyomarc'h's obsession was to find new ways to avoid any kind of waste on the whole line of production. Thus, every single part of the animals has to be consumed, one way or another! That is how he had the brilliant idea to transform the leftovers into natural, valuable food extracts.
Transcending nature's gifts
As a passionate innovator, Mr. Guyomarc'h was constantly seeking new products, pushing his exploration further and further. From new natural extracts to diversity his activity to new synergies, he acquired new businesses, regrouped under a common banner named DIANA in 1990. An acronym meaning in French "Division des Ingrédients Alimentaires Naturels" (Natural edible ingredients' division).
