Company overview

Ceva Animal Health (Pty) Ltd is a subsidiary of Ceva Santé Animale, an international company with its principal offices in Libourne, France.

Ceva Santé Animale was the fastest growing Top 10 veterinary health company through our first 10 years of existence*.  We now rank as the ninth largest animal health group globally – and we were only founded in 1999!  At present Ceva has a 2.7% Annual growth rate.   Sales 2013 €623.9 Million versus 2012 €607 Million.

Our expertise centres on the two fields of pharmacy and biology, where we have dedicated teams that aim to meet the specific demands of the companion animal, poultry, ruminant and swine sectors. We continually strive to find better solutions to existing and emerging diseases which will in turn improve animal health and productivity.

Our care extends beyond animal health and welfare. These days, a staggering 75% of all emerging human infectious diseases are of animal origin. Ceva is involved in the fight against the spread of infectious disease that can be transmitted from wild or domestic animals and birds to humans – diseases known as zoonoses, which include avian flu, brucellosis and Q-fever.

Ceva is a visible supporter of and contributor to various welfare and social programmes all over the world. Our work ranges from researching, developing, producing and supplying animal health products to the poorest livestock owners in the world, of which our SOS (Stamp Out Sleeping sickness) programme in Uganda is a good example; to supplying the UK’s largest dog welfare charity with Dog Appeasing Pheromone (DAP) collars, to help make the lives of dogs in shelter less stressful.

Ceva successfully combines profitability with long-term growth.

Our global business operations are divided into six major zones: Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe (incl. Turkey), North America, Latin America, Africa/Middle East and Asia/Pacific.

We are directly present in 42 countries, have 13 research and development centers, 21 production sites and 3500 employees worldwide. The company is focused on the research, development, production  and marketing of pharmaceutical products and vaccines for companion animal, poultry, ruminant and swine.
