The foodstuff cluster of the future

Inventing tomorrow’s foods, together!

A national food industry competition cluster launched in Brittany in 2006 and today present in the neighbouring regions of Pays de la Loire and Basse-Normandie, Valorial’s mission is to identify, design, and support collaborative and innovative R&D projects.
Projects are carried out in cooperation with companies in the food industry, packaging companies, equipment manufacturers, research and technology transfer centres, and training bodies.
Objective : to reposition the sector and the companies that work in it to focus on projects with high added value, create jobs, and ensure its permanent development.

Who is Valorial for ?

Valorial reaches out to all businesses and bodies in the food industry, throughout the full supply chain, from very small businesses to multinational corporations : producers of animal feed, producers of ingredients and products for mass consumption, equipment manufacturers, packaging and conditioning companies, and public and private innovation partners.

How ?

Certified by Valorial, innovative and collaborative projects receive public funding allocated to competition clusters : funding comes from the State, regional authorities, and Oséo Innovation, and covers 40% of project costs on average.
The technical side of a project is bolstered by the skills of sector managers from technological innovation centres : ADRIA Développement, Vegenov, Breizpack, CBB Développement, CRITT Santé Bretagne, CTCPA, Zoopôle Développement, and the Pôle Agronomique Ouest.
