Space 2017: sustainable development and constructive collaboration

Space, the International Exhibition for Animal Production, was held from 12 to 15 September in Rennes, France. This was an opportunity for d'aucy Group cooperatives, Cecab and Coop de Broons, to invite everyone to visit their new stand, which was proudly created in collaboration with a group of member farmers.

The Cecab and Coop de Broons cooperatives have been promoting their members’ expertise and products at Space for several years. This year’s theme is constructive collaboration between d'aucy Group cooperatives and their members, set against a backdrop of sustainable development.

Constructive collaboration: a forward-looking vision for d'aucy Group

Today, members are saying they want more support from their cooperative to tackle society’s expectations. To meet this need, Cecab and Coop de Broons have chosen constructive collaboration. A genuine asset for future development, constructive collaboration enables cross-business collaboration between members and cooperatives.

Listening, discussing and participating in decision making are the guiding principles of d'aucy Group cooperatives. Take the organisation of Space for example. True team work took place between a group of members to create the stand. The aim: to highlight the variety of cooperative professions, with a focus on a feeling of belonging to the d'aucy Group cooperative life, against a backdrop of sustainable development. To illustrate these aims, we collected personal accounts from farmers so as many people as possible could relate to and feel like they belong to their cooperative.

Carrying out an agroecology assessment

Another key topic at the 2017 exhibition was sustainable development, with members being offered an agroecology assessment. How can we produce better? This question is at the core of society’s expectations and is worth considering. Pre-sales technical professionals were there to answer all your questions and help farmers envisage a more considered production approach. Your cooperative also offered to take a look at your current situation with a mini agroecology assessment of your farm.
