Labelled as an international cluster in July 2005, VEGEPOLYS VALLEY represents a unique territorial aggregation in Europe through its production capacity and expertise, and through the presence of all channels in the field of plants and of a high-level learning and research cluster. Throughout this territory, businesses grow, create jobs, deploy learning, research programs, and give birth to new production technology. VEGEPOLYS VALLEY’s development is founded on centuries of production tradition in the Loire Valley. The region benefits of many advantages: soil and weather conditions, its energy, the know-how of its businesses. In addition, it has full support from the Government and public authorities over several decades that help it become a leader in the field of plants. The networking of businesses, research and education, the cluster’s founding principle, fosters exchanges, marshals the energies and combines the means in order to innovate faster, and better.
