Strengths to protect everyone's health... and make life better


Innovative solutions for human and animal health


For 15 years, Groupe Grimaud has been committed to the field of health.

Groupe Grimaud's first biopharmaceutical investment, listed on NYSE Euronext (VLS) Valneva uses its ultra-modern R&D and GMP facilities to develop unique solutions to fight against infectious illnesses based on its EB66® cell line from duck embryo stem cells. Today, the world's largest pharmaceutical manufacturers have acquired licenses to develop vaccines based on this line.

The VIVA|Screen® technology allows to develop our own range of antibodies.

In Livingstone facilitis (In Scotland), Valneva also produces the vaccine Ixiaro against Japanese encephalitis.

Filavie, the other biopharmaceutical subsidiary of Groupe Grimaud offers its range of autogenous vaccines against bacterial pathogens to the animal-production sector as well as specific vaccines for viral illness.

It is also developing an innovative concept of natural microbial flora of built and stable composition, based on Lactobacillus and Bacillus distributed in drinking water, which improves both the technical performance and the environmental conditions of animal livestock.

Lastly, Hypharm produces rabbit serum and milk from SPF rabbit colonies for the extraction of proteins involved in the manufacture of medecines for human use.
