VEGEPOLYS VALLEY : the competitive clusters, VEGEPOLYS and CÉRÉALES VALLÉE-NUTRAVITA, are joining forces to form the Global Plant Cluster

On Thursday, 27 June, the competitive clusters, VEGEPOLYS and CÉRÉALES VALLÉENUTRAVITA, finalised their merger process. This rapprochement, which began in October 2018, was selected by the French State at the Phase IV announcement of the competitive clusters endorsed for 2019-2022 on 6 February last. Today, with this merger, these two clusters give us VEGEPOLYS VALLEY, a new cluster with international ambitions and a national dimension. It will rely deeply on its strong territorial roots in four different regions: Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Brittany, Centre-Val de Loire and Pays de la Loire, represented by seven sites located as close as possible to its members. From its headquarters in Angers, the cluster unites more than 500 players in the plant sector, focusing on seven areas of innovation. Séverine Darsonville, a farmer based in Puy-de-Dôme and a member of the Board at Limagrain, who has been closely following R&D, has been elected President.
