A majorindustry

Normandy's agrifood industry is an essential economic sector and one of the region's leading employers: 25,500 salaried employees, 830 agrifood production establishments and a turnover of €6.3bn, of which €1.1bn are in export sales.

Within the Caen Normandie territory, the entire value chain is represented: from production (essentially milk, meat and apples) to processing and distribution. It comprises a dense fabric of dynamic SMEs, large companies, cooperatives (Agrial, Creuilly), together with laboratories (Standa) and technical centres (IBFA, Labéo, Ivamer).

Other organisations complete the ecosystem, such as the Normandy Chamber of Agriculture, the Valorial competitiveness cluster, the AREA Normandy association and the IRQUA.

And to reinforce the sector, a number of infrastructures and logistic services:

  • logistics specialised in order preparation
  • distribution of agrifood produce
  • transport of frozen or refrigerated products
  • suppliers of specialised material and equipment
