Concerned by food scandals and continually seeking greater transparency towards consumers, Prince de Bretagne’s producers once again wanted to speak up and present all the actions they employ daily in favour of the three pillars of Sustainable Development: environmental protection, social progress and maintaining a supportive local economy.
In February 2018, Prince de Bretagne presented its new CSR Sustainable Development Report. A report based on a charter of 10 commitments that has been co-constructed by the entire Breton vegetable network.
In 2017, Prince de Bretagne producers, experimental stations, the Chamber of Agriculture and suppliers met over a period of six months to reflect together on a crucial question:
“What does it mean to be a fresh vegetable producer in today’s Prince de Bretagne network?”
“Prince de Bretagne’s Charter of Commitments is the bedrock structuring the improvement programme we have been following for more than 20 years. We have always been committed and proud to say so,” explains Joseph Rousseau, president of CERAFEL.
Because this charter is part of a dynamic process which the network has followed for more than 50 years and resolutely looking to the future, Prince de Bretagne’s producers wanted to add the word CSR to the title of their new report. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) refers to all the actions implemented by organisations to respect the principles of sustainable development.
