Our territory

 

Axéréal operates its grain business in the heart of one of Europe’s major cereal-growing regions.

This territory covers sixteen départements of fertile land from Beauce to the Perche region in the west and the Berry Nivernais Touraine area in the south.

Cereal crops dominate in farms that range in size from 100 to 400 hectares.

The region benefits from natural good soil conditions and a favourable climate.

Modern practices combined with the farms’ technological prowess ensure a strong competitive edge for the region’s producers.
