The signing of the decree was a moment highly anticipated by the whole swine industry after three years of work.

On September 14, the Minister of Agriculture, Julien Denormandie, signed the recognition order of the Association of Producer Organizations (AOP) “Porc Grand Ouest” during his inaugural visit to the SPACE conference. This is the first of its kind in the French pork industry.

The AOP is comprised of the following organizations: Agrial, Eureden, Elpor, Evel Up, GRPPO, Porcinéo, Porélia, Sypro Porcs, Porvéo and Porc Armor Evolution.

Denormandie was accompanied by Jean-Luc Cherau, president of the AOP along with the heads of the various groups.

The purpose of the AOP is to strengthen the market power of farmers who are members of producer organizations.
