Progressing to meet food, social, and environmental challenges
"We believe that agriculture will first progress through plant improvement."
Aware that the earth is our primary resource, we are constantly updating our cropping systems to reduce environmental impact. The genetic progress that seeds provide, allows us to produce a sufficient quantity of quality food more efficiently. Pierre-Henri MESTRE, farmer member
Persevering to prepare for the future
"Working with the Cooperative allows us to plan for the future with greater peace of mind "
The work of a farmer is made of patience and perseverance. Nature, the climate, and the seasons all impose their rhythm, and so we endeavor to make them our allies. We received our farm from our parents and we sincerely hope to pass it on to our children in turn. Working with the Cooperative gives us access to production with added value, which allows us to make a decent living and remain in control of our future.

Cooperating to give meaning to our actions
"Cooperating is part of our culture; the pooling our resources multiplies our strength."
In a cooperative, the priority is not dividend payments or maximum profit. We primarily want to ensure the Group's growth over the long term, like we do with our own farm.
