France: Kaufler management changes hands
French constructor of machinery for ham production
lines, Kaufler, has announced a change of ownership.
Founders of the company, Yvon Corveller and Jean-Claude Champalaune, are to
hand over the keys of the organisation after 28 years to two private majority
shareholders - Jean-Yves Duault and Marc Banallec.
Duault was hitherto poultry commercial manager at Stork Food Systems and

development of a global production line for agrofeed. An export sales increase
is targeted, which currently represents 50% of annual turnover. In addition, an
