An outstanding national coverage

SODIAL was created in 1977 in Agen (South-West France) by Jean-Louis SEVERAC, who aspired to offer egg product manufacturers his comprehensive knowledge of the distribution networks and of the users of egg products on the French market.

In 2015, SODIAL was taken over by Roland BROCARD and Thierry RENARD.

As long-time associates in BROCARD PRODUITS FRAIS agency, they were able to combine their solid experience and capitalise on the complementarity of markets and products between the two structures. They took SODIAL to a new level making it a recognised player on the whole French territory.

2022 is the year the ACCOR agency was taken over, a company which is firmly established in western France’s Foodservice network. This acquisition completes the French territory coverage with agencies located in Nancy, Agen and lastly in Le Mans.
