The Group enjoys leading market shares across five business segments: grain trading, animal feed, hatchery, broiler, as well as slaughtering & meat processing. These activities involve more than 2,200 employees spread across the country, particularly around the strategic regions of Casablanca and Fes.
Zalar operates under a corporate governance structure divided between executive officers and a Board of Directors. The Board of Directors includes four outside and independent directors. There are three committees within the Board of Directors in order to ensure better effectiveness and transparency: the Audit Committee, the Executive Committee and the Strategy and Business Development Committee.
