New consumer demands

A RAPIDLY-CHANGING PICTURE
Consumers are now increasingly inclined to adopt sustainable consumption modes and are developing greater awareness to the environment and farming practices. These expectations are expressed in a variety of ways: healthy, natural or organic products of national or even local origin that will not harm health or the planet and will respect animal welfare, etc.

The demographic challenge

10 BILLION INHABITANTS BY 2050
This is the primary component of global food issues and account must be taken of a dual evolution: economic development and growing urbanization of the middle classes, notably in Asia and Africa.

Agriculture as a regional bond

RURAL AREAS SEEING A LOSS OF GROWTH
In France, the decline of periurban and rural areas in recent years has resulted in the disappearance of public services, small retailers, banks, public transport and hospitals, etc. In parallel, agriculture has continued to suffer: a sustained downturn in the number of farms, aging of the population and a drop in income levels.

The climate challenge

RESPONSIBILITIES OF COMPANIES AND LOCAL COMMUNITIES
The urgency of the situation requires widespread mobilization, notably by the towns and companies that possess certain levers to slow the warming of our planet. Agriculture, industry and transport contribute to climate change and to the solutions that can be implemented to limit it, and these are three sectors where Avril is an active operator.

Uncertainty and volatility

A NEW WORKING FRAMEWORK
Summarized by the acronym VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity), a concept inherited from the US Army, the world at present is characterized by perpetual change and particularly its growing unpredictability.
