Faced with strong agricultural and food challenges: long-term valorization of the profession of farmers, food security and quality of produce, optimization of natural resources and biodiversity, access to progress, and broadened regulatory requirements, Limagrain has structured its CSR approach in order to continue to stay a high-performance and responsible player for years to come. Our CSR approach is an extension of the Limagrain fundamentals: a mission to produce food, a cooperative governance placing Man at the heart of its model, a culture of innovation and partnerships; and a strategic vision promoting sustainable commitments.
Limagrain will thus be in a position to meet the expectations and needs of all its stakeholders (employees, clients, suppliers, shareholders, local communities, public authorities, NGOs, etc.).
CSR forms one of Limagrain’s strategic levers at the service of its mission: to move agriculture forward to meet food challenges. It is a fabulous source of progress, attraction and differentiation, actively contributing to the competitiveness and performance of the company.
