The Cereal Co-operative Market | France

Cereal cooperatives comprise of more than 2000 collection companies, a turnover of 10 billion EUR and more than 300,000 members. The main cereal growing regions in France are the Centre, Champagne-Ardenne and Poitou-Charente. Other significant growing regions include Champagne Céréales, Axereal, Maisadour, In Vivo and Terrena.

 Cooperatives have a significant weight in the grain economy. In 2015, 74% of grain collection was carried out by cereal cooperatives. Since 1947, the status of agricultural cooperative enables farmers to group together to market their contributions, obtain supplies and share services. The principle is “one man, one vote”. It gives each member the same weight to elect the Board of Directors, regardless of their volume of activity.

Cooperatives have undergone profound changes. Regulations are based on safety such as those concerning wheat silos which have led to heavy investments. Logistics have evolved towards storage silos and grain delivery. This tends to be the starting point for cooperative mergers. Logistical organisation is a strong lever in the search for cost-savings.

Professionals have adopted industrial methods to compress loads and lower the break-even point of structures. The development of alliances by business division has generated cost savings and synergies. There has been an improvement in competitiveness, adaptation to market volatility and the gradual disappearance of regulatory measures.

Cereal cooperatives are involved in major mergers, unions and pooling of subsidiaries.

Grain markets are evolving on a global scale. These strategic alliances reflect the challenge of achieving significant industrial, commercial and financial size in the face of markets and international competition.

Farmers today have increasingly larger farms, more diversified activities and more complex management. Beyond products, they need new and personalized services such as crop transport or decision support tools.
