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