Farming and the food industry are hotter topics in France now than they have ever been before. Between public debates, comments, analyses, lobbying and
high passion, there will always be excess and there will always be waste. The current environment is imposing deep transformation on the agricultural world, or at least suggesting it.
We are emerging from a fifty-year period during which agriculture has been supported, helped, driven forwards, subsidised (sometimes excessively) and in some sectors has flourished. We have to look at reality as it is, and not as we would like it to be.
Added to that is the 2016 harvest, which was catastrophic for all farmers and therefore has had a very negative impact on the cooperative’s agricultural business.
We must act, to avoid finding ourselves on the receiving end.
- We must act to provide the agricultural industry and our members with profitable, clean solutions that meet the expectations of their customers, of consumers and of citizens.
- We must act so that our agricultural and food industry companies perform better, innovate, create added financial and human value and generate jobs.
- We must act to bring around the excessive number of people that take issue with our farming and food industries despite their remarkable qualities.
- We must act to make farmers feel secure in an uncertain world, as they compete with other countries that are progressing, innovating and investing.
Like other cooperative groups, Axereal has made a commitment to walking a clear and transparent path: to create value for members and customers by developing specialist sectors in France and internationally.
