Soufflet and InVivo sign cooperative contracts with INRA

Malting and feed ingredient specialist Soufflet and France's largest cooperative InVivo Group have signed a framework agreement with France's R&D organisation INRA to strengthen their scientific collaborations.

On 29 Februari Jean-Michel Soufflet, Soufflet Group President, and Marion Guillou, President of INRA (National Institute of Agronomic Research), signed a framework agreement for a period of five years to increase scientific collaboration in three areas: nutrition, health, animal feed and bioprotection of cereal crops.
One day later, it was the turn of Patrice Gollier, InVivo CEO, to sign a framework agreement with INRA to promote innovation and strengthen the capacity of farmers and their cooperatives to enrol into sustainable agricultural and food systems developments within their territories.
Among the research areas are measurements to quantify the economic and environmental impact of the reduction of pesticides, the development of tools for decision support in agricultural, economic and environmental studies to increase the area of protein and mixed crops, the development of synergies between crops and livestock, etc.
