“Angers, where we explore, cultivate, savour and live nature…”

SIVAL is part of the events that contribute to the “Angers Supernature” dynamic. At the service of the preservation of heritage and the development of nature in the city, this approach aims to: make the territory known and recognized; federate energies (whether professional or amateur, individual or collective).

VEGEPOLYS VALLEY is a world-class cluster for the production (cropping practices) of specialized plants respectful of the environment, health and biodiversity. VEGEPOLYS VALLEY established two goals to face society issues:

  • Create plants that will lead to a lower use of inputs and positive impacts on biodiversity, health and environment.
  • Create "differentiation factor" plants to open new markets and therefore improve company's competitiveness.

VEGEPOLYS VALLEY, as partner to and a principal actor within SIVAL, is actively involved in promoting the trade fair.
SIVAL is a key event linked to both VEGEPOLYS VALLEY and the local area, and it is the only event to gather all sectors of the cluster around their production issues.
