The only potato breeder in France and the leading national collector of tubers, Germicopa (Quimper, seventy employees, €40M turnover) has been part of the French Florimont Desprez group since 2014 and relies on two hundred farmers to produce 80 kT of seed per year, making it one of the top five European players in the sector.
The company exports half its vegetables to some sixty countries by paying very specific attention to the logistics of its export strategy.
Germicopa “is breaking new ground” by switching its shipments to containerisation to transport its products, so that they are handled the least possible and enjoy controlled conditions to the furthermost areas of Mali, Burkina Faso or Niger.
