Grain procurement

As BZ’s long-standing activity, grain procurement is focused on the large region of Normandy.  It encompasses a network of 1,500 independent farms and represents an average yearly procurement volume of 575,000 tonnes.

Import-export

The import-export activity is structured based on two major product groups: grains with Bz Grains and pulses with Bz Pulses.

Bz Grains exports 1.5 million tonnes on average per crop. Bz Pulses commercialises 150,000 tonnes of pulses on average per crop. BZ Oléa commercialises 80,000 tonnes of oilseeds on average. Import concerns commodities and/or qualities not available locally.

2020 PERSPECTIVE

In the wake of a disappointing French harvest in quantitative terms, BZ group plans a decreasing activity in terms of volume for the first half of this 2020 crop-year. The good average qualities will however allow the group to position on speciality markets.
