With its development of sustainable agricultural practices favouring biodiversity, soil fertility and a reduced carbon footprint, Semons du Sens, which can be translated as "let's sow sense", in line with the group's five major objectives, is a contributor to the fight against climate change.
Rolled out among 8500 farmers in various segments (wheat, barley, vines, dried vegetables), Semons du Sens is a collective process to boost market competitiveness that connects downstream expectations with upstream agricultural practices.
Production from sustainable Semons du Sens channels has grown noticeably in both first- and second-stage processing operations, i.e. milling, ingredients and malting, and artisan and industrial baking, respectively. In 2022, Semons du Sens comprised 15 sustainable channels for wheat and barley, governed by stringent, scalable and controlled specifications. These are reflected downstream, for example, with Moulins Soufflet, which sold more than 300,000 tonnes of Semons du Sens flour in 21–22.
