Highlights for tomorrow's agriculture
Over 150 people attended the Annual General Meeting held on Thursday morning. They heard a presentation by Sébastien Roumegous, agronomist and specialist in soils and regenerative agriculture and founder of “Biosphères”, on preserving soil quality, one of the key elements of the Ambition 2030 corporate strategy.
Around 350 people attended the public General Meeting in the afternoon. Employees, members, elected representatives, experts and institutions all came together for this event, which gave the Group the opportunity to look ahead to the future of agriculture in a context heavily impacted by climatic and economic hazards. To mark the occasion, Bertrand Piccard, explorer and Chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation – which promotes innovative solutions to combat climate change – gave an inspiring speech, duplexed from COP28 in Dubai, on the subject of ecological sustainability combined with economic sustainability in agriculture.
Three round tables were also held on the subjects of “Planet and Life, People and Territories, and Healthy, Sustainable and Accessible Food”. These round tables highlighted the initial actions implemented by Maïsadour to address these key issues.
