Governance and partners


On June 2019, the French Prime Minister ratified the merger of VEGEPOLYS and CÉRÉALES VALLÉE-NUTRAVITA and guaranteed the official endorsement of the fruit of their union for 2019-2022. The new name of this cluster is VEGEPOLYS VALLEY, which combined international ambitions, attached to horticulture and regional ambitions, attached to areable crops.

The competitiveness cluster  is a 1901 law association.

The 500 members are divided into 4 colleges (firms, research, experimentation and training organizations, consular chambers & others institutions, representative structures and development organizations) elected by a Board of Directors.
