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
  • Crops protection, fertilizers
  • 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.
