A cross-disciplinary commitment to shared wellbeing

Convinced that the well-being of humans and other animal species is dependent on biodiversity and the environment in which they live, we have built our sustainable development approach by working collectively with our farmer-members, employees and partners to develop well-being agriculture and food, the basis for a sustainable future for all our stakeholders.

As part of the key concept of agriculture and food for well-being, our approach is based on three pillars that cover our entire value chain: contributing to life in the company and in rural areas, preserving the Earth and the living, and offering safe and healthy food for all.

Accelerating our transition to agroecology

Reducing our carbon footprint is central to our approach in terms of agroecology, but we prefer to adopt a broader definition that also encompasses key issues, such as animal welfare, reducing the use of synthetic chemical products, promoting biodiversity, etc.

Our Cooperative sees agroecology as an agronomic and husbandry challenge that requires us to rethink and implement agricultural practices and techniques that regenerate the soil, boost biodiversity and improve animal welfare so that we can market products with small environmental footprints, at the same time as securing a productive and rewarding form of agriculture for today’s producers and those of tomorrow.

Our dairy sectors are fully committed to on-farm wellbeing

Our livestock farmers, vets, nutritionists, technical and building energy advisers, and innovation, communication and CSR teams have worked closely together to produce the new version of the Charter of Good Livestock Farming Practice (CBPE) that was introduced for dairy farming in 2021 deployed in 2021 in dairy farming with our breeders member Grand Fermage and Soignon in particular.

More specifically, the updated charter contains new animal welfare criteria based on the ‘Boviwell’ benchmark used to assess the welfare of cattle on farms, and aligns with the principles of the international ‘One Welfare’ concept that links animal welfare directly to that of farmers and their environment.

National and international procedures and certifications that support our commitments and credibility

Agrial joined the UN Global Compact – the world’s largest responsible business initiative – in 2018. So our commitments are shaped to ensure that we make an active contribution to achieving UN Sustainable Development Goals.

More than 90% of our food production sites hold at least one quality, health, safety and environmental certification, including the international IFS, BRC, ISO 22000, ISO 26000 and other standards.

100% of salads produced by our farmer members are LEAF – Linking Environment And Farming – certified. This private British standard is designed to give consumers the confidence that the products concerned have been produced in ways that respect the environment and the rural landscape.
