VIVESCIA IN A NUTSHELL

France's largest grain cooperative, VIVESCIA is committed to taking care of grain, from field to fork.

VIVESCIA is an international, cooperative farming and food processing group, with 7,500 employees in 25 countries, generating annual revenue of €3.2 billion. Specialising in producing and adding value to grain through food applications, VIVESCIA is owned by 11,000 farmers from the north-east of France.

Over the last 90 years, a Grain Community has emerged, driven by the same entrepreneurial ambition to further their mission: to nourish people. Every day, VIVESCIA’s farmers and employees undertake to innovate for more sustainable farming and food.
