Organization of governance

As a co-operative, our governance is based on the principle of one vote per person and on the threefold capacity of our members as partners, farmers and customers.

A new governance

One year after the creation of the Eureden union, the founding cooperatives of Eureden (Triskalia and Cecab) merged on 1 January 2021, giving birth to a single cooperative with new governance.

As an agricultural cooperative, the governance of the Eureden Group is based on a Board of Directors made up of 28 farmers from the four Breton departments and representative of all agricultural production.

  • The Chairman of the cooperative, elected by the Board of Directors, is Serge Le Bartz, a farmer from Lignol in Morbihan. (top right)

  • Denis Le Moine, a farmer in Bréhand, is vice-president (bottom left)
  • Pierre Antonny is Deputy Director General (bottom right).

Territorial organization

The territorial organisation of Eureden is based on 4 departments, 15 territorial sections and 30 local catchment areas.

Each has its own role:

  • The department: the external representation of the cooperative and the animation of the territorial sections;
  • The territorial section is the statutory basis of proximity;
  • The proximity basin is dedicated to the animation of the territory. It is a place for initiatives and experimentation at the local level.

Cooperative trades

Our professions also structure the territory. Eureden counts :

7 sections specialised by production which are in charge of the cooperative’s trades:

  • Vegetables
  • Pork
  • eggs
  • Meat poultry
  • Cattle
  • Milk
  • Cereals

8 transversal commissions :

  • Sustainable agriculture
  • Organic sectors
  • Cooperative life and territories
  • Animal nutrition
  • Agricultural supplies
  • Finance
  • Communication
  • Installation/Transmission

To project ourselves into the medium and long term, in 2021 we are going to launch a prospective commission whose role is to reflect on the future of our cooperative group.

These specialised sections and commissions will enable us to deal with all of the cooperative’s issues, whether they relate to our business lines or to more cross-cutting subjects. They have an important role to play in the close relationship that we want to maintain with the members of the cooperative.

Overall, the cooperative has 400 elected representatives, directors and section councillors representing the territories and trades.

The objective of this organisation is to remain close to our 20,000 members.
