Stéphane Maloisel - Président ActiMeat

A WORD FROM THE DIRECTORS 

What has driven me and motivated me for the past thirty-five years is to experience new entrepreneurial challenges. I believe in a virtuous circle that reconciles:  growth through innovation, collective development of employees, and value creation for our customers.

Helping food companies to build, to act in order not to suffer, to design to serve from what we offer at our “ActiMeat” offer, that’s what keeps me moving.

And you have to move very quickly in this economy… We will challenge ourselves, we will challenge you in your core business, but we will always keep the “spirit” and our role as stimulator on a daily basis.

 

Stéphane Maloisel – President

Stéphane Maloisel - Président ActiMeat
A WORD FROM THE DIRECTORS 

Born in a butcher’s shop like my father, with a legendary attachment to my region, Provence, I am the team’s globe-trotter. I am constantly travelling the meat planet in the service of an industry of … seeing more trust.

Selecting producers, observing the evolution of practices, analysing cutting methods and enhancing the value of the raw material for our customers are my daily concerns.

The ActiMeat adventure, with its innovative dimension, is shaking up a somewhat conservative business sector. It is therefore with a taste for challenge, conviction and argumentation that I am using my experience to serve the clients who trust us
