Carrefour pledges to support its French partner producers to help them through the economic consequences of the frost

Carrefour pledges to support its French partner producers to help
them through the economic consequences of the frost
A historic frost has ruined – even devastated – agricultural production over hundreds
of thousands of hectares of farmland.
In view of these dramatic consequences, Carrefour is today announcing a series of
initiatives designed to support its 4000 partners involved in its Carrefour Quality Line,
Reflets de France and Carrefour Bio products:
● Carrefour is pledging to honour all of its commitments to work with its partner
producers over three-year periods, thus guaranteeing them as much of an
overview as possible over future seasons.
● Carrefour is pledging to help its partner producers to recover as much of their
produce as possible that was spared by the frost – even if it is damaged – by
adapting its requirements, particularly regarding the appearance of fruit and
vegetables.
● Carrefour is pledging to reduce payment terms so as to ease any cash flow
issues that those of its partner producers who are the most affected may be
experiencing.
● Given the significant agricultural losses, Carrefour is renewing and bolstering
its commitment to purchasing products of French origin. Carrefour will be
giving priority to selling products of French origin on all of its shelves
throughout the season.
“To help our farmers through the trials that they are currently experiencing, Carrefour is
standing shoulder to shoulder with them and will support them in the long run. Our
responsibility is to be their partner – whatever the circumstances!” said Rami Baitieh,
Executive Director of Carrefour France.
