Virbac Group

Veterinarian and biologist Pierre Richard-Dick founded the Virbac Group in 1968 in Nice, France, to serve his fellow veterinarians. Taking what he learned in practice and from his colleagues, he developed both practical and innovative products to enhance animal health. Today, the Virbac Group has grown to become one of the largest independent veterinary pharmaceutical companies in the world.

AN EXPERT IN ANIMAL HEALTH

Over the years, Virbac has become a recognized expert in the sector, offering products and services that combine quality, effectiveness and convenience for care providers (veterinarians and animal owners).

The company has over 4,350 employees, and is present in more than 100 countries across the globe. Quoted on the Paris Stock Exchange since 1985, Virbac has remained a family company, not only regarding its shareholding but also through its management principles, its culture and its company values.

40 YEARS OF INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE

International presence has been an integral part of Virbac's strategy since the very beginning. Starting in 1978, group expansion abroad sped up progressively in the 1980s and then in the 1990s. Today, Virbac is present in all 5 continents, with approximately 85% of its sales made outside of France.
