Alland & Robert is proud to announce that we’ve become a member of the French network Valorial, the first network devoted to agri-food innovation through a collaborative approach.
Product innovation is at the heart of the success of Alland & Robert, thanks to a constantly evolving Research & Development strategy.
Joining Valorial enables us to continue our work in applied and basic research while collaborating with other organizations, sharing development projects and creating innovation challenges. With nearly 400 members including manufacturers, research centers and higher education establishments, the Valorial network brings together a community of over 10,000 innovators driven by the same ambition: imagining the food of tomorrow.
In addition, because Valorial is located in France’s Grand Ouest region (Europe’s leading agri-food hub), it’s a great opportunity for Alland & Robert to participate to local projects and get involved in our home region of Normandy !
On the occasion of Alland & Robert joining the network, Valorial interviewed our R&D Director Dr. Isabelle Jaouen, and the article is available online.
