A responsible and ecofriendly agriculture

We are a committed Cooperative from the South-West of France, we place Man and the Livings at the heart of our concerns, for a sustainable agriculture, food and society.  

Our CSR mission

The farmers and employees of Maïsadour promote sustainable agricultural practices and chains of excellence in order to develop their territory and the local economy.

They offer quality products for healthy and responsible food while respecting the livings, the resources and the biodiversity in a framework combining cooperative culture and quality of working life.

Maïsadour gets the “confirmed” CSR label

Becoming CSR committed is sending a strong message: the one of an organization assuming the impacts of its decisions and which is committed to the sustainable development of its activities.

Maïsadour wanted to be part of this approach and had it certified by an independent agency: AFNOR.

This CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) labeling allows Maïsadour’s commitments and actions for animal welfare, fight against climate change, quality of working life work, preservation of the biodiversity, etc., to be recognized.

This labeling is based on the only recognized international standard for sustainable development: ISO 26 000.

After a 4-day audit in December 2021, the Maïsadour Cooperative was awarded the “committed CSR” label.

In order to implement this approach in all its subsidiaries, Maïsadour is the first Agricultural Cooperative in France to have established its own reference system, thus Maïsadour proves its commitment to responsible agriculture preparing for the future. ”.
