Our cooperative governance

gouvernance bodies

Our governance bodies

As a cooperative, our governance is based on the democratic principle of "one person, one vote” and on values of solidarity, responsibility, continuity and proximity. Every member can take on responsibilities within the company: We have over 50 representative bodies where 600 of our members, elected by their peers, contribute to company life.

This governance is represented by:
•    a balance between territorial and farm representation
•    a clear division of responsibilities between elected members and managers
•    business as a focus in decision-making.
