Governing Committees

Group Committees

There are 5 Group Committees: the Strategic Monitoring Committee, the Appointments and Remuneration Committee, the Financial Auditing and Accounts Committee, the Ethics Committee and the CSR Committee. Each of them ensures that governance runs as smoothly as possible in their specialist field, so that their members can focus on certain issues.

Regional Commissions

There are 6 Regional Commissions : Béarn, Bigorre, Garonne, Gascony, Gave Océan, and North Aquitaine. Made up of board members, they ensure regional management in close cooperation with member farmers and local institutions. This organisation helps us implement policies in line with farmers’ expectations and according to the specificities of each region.
