While the sector has weathered the health crisis well (French production in 2021 has exceeded its 2019 level and has more than doubled since 2016), it is preparing to face new challenges in the uncertain international context we are experiencing.
At the heart of our preoccupations, sustainable development and corporate social and environmental responsibility will be the subjects that drive us for this new edition of Précieuses Confluences.
The CSR Club, launched by Francéclat in June 2022, will enable us to pursue our discussions throughout the year on a wide range of fascinating and highly topical themes.”
