InVivo Group joins the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative Platform (SAI Platform) to contribute to the work on regenerative agriculture at a global scale

  • Le 16 May 2024

InVivo is taking action to promote the agricultural transition and is mobilising its expertise towards a collective approach to develop sustainable agriculture worldwide.

InVivo has been a Société à mission (BCorp) ever since 2020 and is one of Europe's leading agricultural groups with a presence in 35 countries. It operates across the entire value chain, in international grain trade, agriculture, agri-food (malt, wheat and wine divisions) and retail.

"InVivo is proud to join the international SAI Platform network, to support the capacity of our businesses to deploy sustainable agricultural sectors, geared towards resilient and regenerative agriculture, " says Thierry Blandinières, InVivo Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Recognising agriculture’s vital role in addressing climate change, InVivo is committed to advancing the transition of the agriculture and food sectors, particularly through its Sowing Good Sense. With almost 10,000 partner farmers around the world, Sowing Good Sense Sense is making a substantial impact through agro-ecological practices that reduce the carbon footprint, promote biodiversity and preserve water resources and soil quality.

InVivo is helping to scale up towards ever more resilient and sustainable agriculture.

InVivo is a pioneer in traced and regenerative field crop production chains in France through its agriculture business (including Soufflet Agriculture), and also internationally, more specifically in malt, as the world's leading maltster (Malteries Soufflet). The Group is developing positive-impact offerings to drive a genuine agro-ecological transition on a large scale.

With local roots and global reach, Malteries Soufflet is the connection point between agriculture, food and beverage industries worldwide.

The company is devoted to developing evermore sustainable and innovative barley-malt chains, from field to glass, bringing exceptional products and personalized services to customers. With 41 malting plants in 20 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and America, and more than 2300 employees, Malteries Soufflet produces 3.7 million tons of malt annually to meet the demands of its customers – large breweries and craft brewers, distillers and other industrial players – around the world.

The InVivo Group's membership of the SAI Platform strengthens its commitments and supports its ambitions to achieve 80% of sustainable barley in its supply and 500,000 tons of low-carbon malt produced by 2030.
