On Wednesday 27 February, Bienvenue à la Ferme (Welcome to the Farm) and Crédit Agricole signed a partnership agreement during the 2019 Salon International de l’Agriculture trade fair. The agreement aims to provide farmers with the support and tools needed to develop their agritourism and short-circuit food sales activities and comes at a time of increasing connectivity and rapid changes in consumer behaviour.
On the occasion of the Salon International de l’Agriculture trade fair, the European Investment Bank and the Crédit Agricole group formalised the release of the third and final tranche of the Crédit Agricole SME and Mid-Cap Agriculture II financing programme. Launched in 2016, this €300 million package, divided into three tranches of €100 million, is intended to provide loans at attractive terms to small and medium-sized enterprises in the agricultural, forestry and fisheries sectors over three years.
As the leading bank for farmers, Crédit Agricole is a partner of all types of farming. With this in mind, it is structuring its specific approach around organic farming with the aim of meeting the needs of farmers whether they are transitioning, setting up or already established in organic farming.
The Crédit Agricole Group has announced the creation of CA Transitions, the first fund dedicated to the transition of energy, agriculture and agri-food systems launched by a bank in its own name. This will consolidate its position as the leading bank supporting the transition across its local areas.
