What is Intercéréales?
Intercéréales, a private non-profit association, is the interprofessional organisation representing cereals in France. These comprise amaranth, barley, buckwheat, canary grass, chia, corn (maize), durum wheat, meslin, millet, milling wheat, oats, quinoa, rice, rye, sorghum, spelt, triticale and tritordeum, and related cereal products.
Created on the initiative of the professional organisations representing the cereals sector, we bring together all the major players from across the industry: production, collection/marketing and first-line processing. Intercéréales is a forum for exchange between these organisations, which work together to develop the cereals sector in France, and to internationally promote French excellence in the sector and the high quality of France’s cereals production and products.
The 14 members of Intercéréales are the national professional organisations, representing production, collection and marketing, and first-line processing. These “professional families” are grouped into three colleges:
