Axereal won the local economy (Loire & Orléans) category at the 10th Business Trophies organised by the République du Centre newspaper and its partners.
The prize, presented to Axereal Chairman Jean-François Loiseau, recognises the economic impact of the cooperative’s business across the local area, and in particular its work to develop sustainable agriculture.
The awards ceremony was organised in partnership with Loire & Orléans Eco, Crédit Agricole Centre Loire, Orcom, Mercedes-Benz Etoile 45 and Harmonie Mutuelle. This annual event has several goals: to be a key opportunity for Loiret business people to get together; to promote local businesses and their products; to highlight local news; to raise the profile of business sectors and initiatives and to develop links between local businesses and organisations. More than 1,000 people filled Orleans’ Zenith arena to pay tribute to the seven winning businesses.
