Agriculture is one of France’s leading industries and many of the companies registered in this economic sector recently are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Even if these companies benefit from a strong support from the government, the French Association of Food Industries decided to offer targeted measures which help agri-food businesses to expand their operations outside the local market. Our company registration consultants in France can assist foreign investors who want to open agricultural business here.
This is the name of the platform which will be launched by the Association of Food Industries and Business France, the agency supporting all SMEs registered in France. The club will help companies share information, will encourage and help them to adopt good practice strategies and will create a unified database of all agricultural companies in France, including large corporations smaller ones could learn from. The club aims to gather 200 companies which will create an export strategy related to agricultural products.
According to the Association of Food Industries, French companies would have many advantages considering one of the most important points on the chairman’s agenda is to develop new markets for these companies. During the first stage, the Association will gather and compile a complete report on the EU agricultural market followed by the creation of a strategy which would grant easy access to French companies.
Another priority of the club is to unify small farmers (considering the increased number of remote small companies in rural areas) and present them with an opportunity of joining an association which will strengthen their production capacity. Business owners will also be able to exchange information on their practices and learn from one another.
Business France will play an important role in the Agri-Food Export Club as it has one the vastest networks which will help agricultural businesses to expand their operations both at national and international levels.
