"When you are a farmer, you live according to the seasons and depend on the harvest cycle. You learn to be persistent and patient. It takes breeders 7 to 10 years to develop the varieties we sow. Time is a key element in our business. We are not guided by short-term demands. Our vision of shareholders is that of farmers looking to bring added value to their production and ensure the long-term sustainability of their farms. We are not owners of our cooperative, but temporary beneficiaries. This is what guides our choices over the long term.”
As committed cooperative members, these partners are above all entrepreneurs, more concerned with creating added value for their production than receiving dividends. They consider the Group’s growth over the long term, like their own farms.
