Our organisation around innovation, research and development
Agrial’s innovation approach is deployed internally, between the Co-operative’s divisions and activities, with R&D departments and employees who are passionate and committed to each of our divisions.
Work is also carried out collectively in a transversal manner on common issues and piloted by the Innovation, Research and Development department of the Agrial Group in conjunction with the divisions.
All this work is shared at the level of the Agrial Group’s R&D Committee, which federates the research and development departments of each of our sectors.
We also rely on Open Innovation by involving external partners such as start-ups, research laboratories or technical centres with which we work.
In a diversification approach, Agrial has invested in several promising start-ups, such as Biorea.
Biorea relies on 10 years of expertise in fermentation as well as on its innovative and patented air-lift bioreactor technology and concentrates the biotech & industrial expertise of its team within a state-of-the-art industrial tool. From fermentation to atomisation.
