Production- Agricultural machinism & supply


Our agrofood recruiting consultancy is a specialist of the sectors related to the very first steps of the industry: agriculture, collection, agricultural supply such as agricultural machinism. This is the very beginning of the food product life.


Recruiting firm specialized in the agro-food industry


We are recruitment specialists in the upstream phase of the agro-food industry: agriculture (plants, breeding, farming, etc.), agro-collecting and agro-supplying are some of the key segments in this initial phase.


The latter supplies farmers with all the required production inputs:

  • Seeds

  • Feed and animal health
  • Agricultural machinery and infrastructure (e.g. barns)


With its 450,000 farmers, 63,000 employees and 3,500 cooperatives, the French agri-business is clearly a high growth sector.


We note production that is valued at €73 billion in France – that is 16.9% of the European market, a 6.7%-contribution to GDP, ranking first in Europe with around 30 million hectares.


Agricultural machinery makes up most of this share: USD 60 billion in import sales (53.9% for Europe), 170,000 jobs in France, 3,600 dealers, 514 industrial players and 68% of manufacturers.


The involved segments are exceptional and at the cutting edge of innovation as they form some of the major trends. They include: connected and sustainable agriculture, robotization, Food Tech and biotechnologies.

Processing – Ingredients & supply


From raw material, the food product has to be processed to be eaten… Our agrofood recruiting consultancy Leaderia International Search is also an expert of food processing, ingredients and food intermediary product. We are then able to work for chemistry, nutrition and health. 20% of our customers come from these sectors.


Processing department


This department was born from customers who spontaneously gave us recruitment projects to manage with technical specificities that really interested us. As a result, we created a close-knit network in this area while developing a large-scale database of candidates and customers with increasingly defined targets.


This c. USD 70 million global market worth 2 million tons (2019) generates annual growth of 3% on a long-term basis with sub-sectors that could achieve 8% growth (algae, enzymes, food supplements).


The ingredients market – commodity and specialty – is fast-growing, propelled on the one hand by consumers looking for new healthier and more organic (NutriScore, Clean label…) alternatives, and on the other by younger generations who aspire to new sensory experiences (a quest for the exotic, mixing of tastes, textures, colors, new inspirations and many more).


We work hand-in-hand multinational groups and large corporations, pathfinders of food ingredients as well as SME experts in niche markets with unique processes and know-how.


Drawing on our razor-sharp expertise, we have started recruiting for a related sector of activity: life sciences (chemistry, cosmetics, chemicals, etc.) where the ingredients are actively used and where analogies with food are more relevant than ever.

We have already successfully completed projects for globally renowned life sciences players.

  • Head of Pilot Center
  • R&D Director
  • Head of Quality Engineer
  • R&D Process Director
  • R&D Product Director
