About us

 

AVPA is well aware of the importance of the concepts of “terroir” and geographical origins, which have demonstrated their validity for specific produces. The association also remains aware of both social equity and environmental protection, intertwined in sustainable development.

AVPA acquired an international reputation. More than 700 producers from around the world participate in AVPA contests every year.

The Agency for the Valorization of Agricultural Products, AVPA, is a non-governmental, non-profit organization, mainly composed of producers and taste enthusiasts.

 

The association's goal is to enhance the value of agricultural products and to recognize the excellence of some producers, too often forgotten in the midst of mass marketing.

In a world of "raw materials" or "commodities", dominated by yield and financial requirements, high-quality products deserve a different treatment, and pioneers must be supported in their efforts.

AVPA tries to raise consumer and distributor awareness of the real value of agricultural production - provided the quality and effort that implies, distinguishes them from more standardized products. It therefore provides producers the means of genuine local and international recognition. It supports and organizes training and animation involved in the awakening of consumer interest and professional ability.

Founded in 2005, AVPA is in constant contact with over 5,000 producers in 40 countries. It now has about 700 active members on 5 continents, mainly farmers. Its Office (production, trade and gastronomy producers and practitioners), its Juries (technicians, chefs, taste professionals and Q-graders), the personalities who support it are all volunteers. Philippe Juglar is the President.
