Frozen vegetables

The Eureden co-operative agri-food group is a major actor on the European frozen vegetables and prepared products market. With our Paysan Breton, d’aucy and Maestro di Verdura brands as well as production by distribution brands and co-packing by Gelagri, we provide specific responses to the expectations of the various marketing channels (retail, catering, industry, export).

Each year, we sell more than 180,000 tonnes of frozen food. Our development is based on our value chain and the expertise of our teams, an agroecological approach in France and Spain, and our capacity for innovation.

Control of the production value chain

Our vegetables are sourced from two areas: France and Spain. In France, the vast majority of our vegetables are sourced from Eureden co-operatives’ member farms. In Spain, we procure them from partner farmers.  

All our products are frozen and packaged in France, at our Breton plants in Loudéac and Saint-Caradec, or in Spain, at our plants in Santaëlla and Milagro.

 

 

 

 

Agroecology at the heart of our processes

Our co-operative and its farmers are committed to a process of continuous improvement to meet society’s expectations and develop our practices towards production that is ever more respectful of the environment, such as biodiversity, crop protection, and the conservation of soil and water resources in particular.

Many years of research have led to the creation of a multitude of innovations to allow us to produce better from less. We are replacing conventional production methods with an agroecological approach ranging from organic produce to a “third path”.

To fulfil our promise of respect for nature and people, our certified organic vegetables are cultivated using methods and practices that maintain the natural balance. In France, the vegetables of our 1,600 farmers are also grown under the Agri Confiance certification label.

The Producers’ Organisation covering all 1,600 growers has obtained Level 2 French environmental certification, meaning chefs in mass catering can comply with the Egalim law. In Spain, our Veconatur-certified vegetables are grown using innovative agricultural techniques that have replaced chemical insecticides and fungicides with natural substances.

 

 

 

 

 

Quality and traceability first and foremost

We have always endeavoured to offer only high-quality products. To do so, all our vegetables are selected with care. Crop inspections and quality controls are in place throughout the cultivation, manufacturing and packaging processes. From farm to table, our process is intentionally demanding and completely transparent. 

As a result, it is very important to us that our products grown in France are released to market as soon as possible. Our “Fruits & Légumes de France” (“Fruit & Vegetables of France”) and “Agri Confiance” certifications, as well as Paysan Breton’s membership in the “Produit en Bretagne” (“Made in Brittany”) association, and d’aucy’s commitment to French production, vouch for this commitment.
