LEADER IN AGROECOLOGY
PRODUCE BETTER FOR PEOPLE AND NATURE
By replacing conventional farming methods developed for more than 40 years with an agro-ecological approach that encompasses both organic productions and «Third Way» productions. The aim today is to respond to farmers and consumers' expectations and constraints while minimizing our overall environmental impact for a sustainable future.
OUR CONCRETE SOLUTIONS
Thanks to research, trials, collaborations, new technologies and above all, common sens, douzens of solutions have been developed to produce more effectively, using less chemicals through innovation . Here are a few examples:
LEADER IN AGROECOLOGY
OUR 4 GOALS IN DETAIL
Providing consumers with a sufficient quantity of products to feed them and ensuring quality standards as well as fair and acceptable prices.
Supporting societal expectations and changing consumption habits.
Produicing is not easy as we often forget to take into account variable factors: weather conditions, insect attacks, fungal attacks...
Preserving vegetables, products quality and food safety that we owe to consumers means first taking care of our plants.
Prioritizing alternative production methods vs. methods that damage the soil structure and the use of chemicals.
One goal: do everything possible to minimize even more our impact on the environment.
In a fair trade approach, ensuring that the farmer's work is fairly valued.
Our commitments: to give visibility to our farmers for the full year committing ourselves on a certain amount of areas and volumes, as well as prices prior to sowing. To accompany our farmers during tough times and with the challenges of agroecological mutation.
Bad experiments can damage the production potential of lands and consumers health, jeopardize the quantity of products available, involve extra costs and thus create prices that are acceptable for no one.
Our goal: developing a new Agroecological way geared towards Organic farming and new technics as well as cropping strategies for conventional products.
This is going to take time, cost a fair and it has to be measured, controlled, verified before being spread to a wider audience.
We thrive for a sustainable approach of agriculture: sustainable for Nature, sustainable for consumers, sustainable for farmers.
3 LABELS SUPPORTING THIS APPROACH
ORGANIC FARMING, AGRI CONFIANCE, VECONATUR
Organic certified vegetables are grown according to a system of production that uses agricultural practices which respect natural balances. Synthetic chemicals and GMO are banned. Our organic vegetables are inspected by the independent accredited third party Ecocert.
Role, continuous progress, 4 pillars
VECONATUR certified vegetables are grown according to innovative agricultural methods that eliminate the use of chemical insecticides and herbicides in favor of natural substances
VECONATUR is not about Zero Residue. It goes beyond as NO chemical pesticides are used.
VECONATUR encompasses more than 15 years of studies to replace "chemistry" by natural products. VECONATUR is the work of a dedicated team, known for its expertise.
VECONATUR is a certified approach that is validated by the independant external body SAI Global.
