The development of this 100% local chain is firstly a way to meet the new societal expectations in terms of local production and to a desire for food independence.
The former feed factory of SOAL located on the Alilandes site, in the area of Péré in Saint-Sever is being converted to a 100% local soybean project. A brand new soybean crushing unit will allow to value on site the production from the territory and to directly supply the animal chains of the Maïsadour and Vivadour Cooperative Group in the first half of 2022.
Born from the combination of Maïsadour Cooperative and Agralia wine activities, the Inovitis company has been the Maïsadour Group Business since 2017. Located in the heart of the vineyards of Bordeaux, Inovitis offers winegrowers a wide range of supply options and services such as innovative management tools, support for regulatory developments and certification, as well as monitoring the vineyard. Led by approximately forty employees, the Inovitis team relies on the expertise of its employees as much as on a base of shared values around viticulture and the wine world in general.
LISTENING AND ENTHUSIASM
To anticipate the evolution of the requirements of the sector and meet the challenges of the future, Inovitis has developed a specific methodology based on the active listening of winegrowers, the consideration of societal trends and the perception of consumer expectations. This approach promotes a direct contact with the actors of the chain, who can thus easily exchange with each advisor and directly access the bearer of the sought know-how.
IDEAAL* is an approach initiated by Maïsadour to improve the sustainability of the agricultural operations of the territory and the productions resulting from it. Initiated in 2020, the goal of IDEAAL is to take advantage of the current virtuous farming practices, while building the agricultural future of our territory by offering solutions adapted to each production situation. The approach is organized around some farm diagnostics. In particular, the survey takes into account the reference criteria of the SAI (Sustainable Agriculture Initiative) platform, the ambitions of the Common Agricultural Policy and the HVE (High Environmental Value) reference framework.
