Priorities for the regional chamber

Brittany is a land of livestock and vegetable production. This region produces mainly milk, poultry, pigs, veal calves and vegetables, so the agriculture and the food industry occupy an important place in the economy and employment. It also faces many challenges. The chamber of agriculture has 5 priorities:

  • Renewing agricultural generations,
  • Supporting the ecological, economic and social transitions of farms
  • Rerritorial development
  • Representing farmers to public authorities
  • Implementating public services: new farm installation, identification in particular.

In order to respond to these priorities, the Chambers provide training, support for groups of farmers, research and development, and innovation development.

European cooperation

Even though Brittany is in competition with other leading agricultural regions in Europe, they too must face the same challenges: economic profitability, climate change, renewal of generations, etc. Europe is the relevant scale for developing innovation that will make it possible to collectively respond to these challenges and regions are the relevant scale for testing them. The Chamber of Agriculture of Brittany strives to develop its European connections with the world of agricultural research and development through various programmes and cooperation projects.

The Chambers of this region are involved in the following projects with AC3A:
