About us

The Zolux Group is a family business which is a passionate and dynamic stakeholder in the pet store market. For over 80 years, owing to teams driven by a passion for their profession and a constant desire to innovate, the Zolux Group has created key pet store brands..

Background

The Zolux Group began as a simple seed store in the centre of a Charente-Maritime town in France, back in 1933. Madeleine and Fernand Haurit, the great-grandparents of the family who still run the business today, started out by selling agricultural seed, then bird seed and grain for small animals.

The business grew year after year, went on to specialise in pet products, and is now a key stakeholder in the pet store market.

The Zolux Group has 3 brands:

The Zolux brand, created in 1971, is exclusively sold in specialist networks (pet stores, garden centres and large DIY stores). ZOLUX offers accessories and consumables for all types of animals: dogs, cats, ornamental fish, birds, small animals and poultry.
