Our cooperative identity

A unique regional foothold

From Nord to Ariège, from Finistère to Bas-Rhin

Every day, tank trucks travel the length and breadth of the country and mountain roads in the 71 departments that make up Sodiaal's eight cooperative regions: the Nord region, Centre-Est region, Sud-Est region, Massif Central region, Sud-Ouest region, Pays de Loire region, Bretagne Est region and Bretagne Ouest region. They collect milk from the group's 12,500 producers, regardless of the farm's size or location. The trucks then deliver the milk to the group's various industrial sites located throughout France. Due to this foothold in the regions, Sodiaal plays an important role in maintaining the strong economic fabric of rural France.

Firmly established in mountain regions

     With over 3,400 producers in mountain regions, primarily spread across the departments of Aveyron,
     Loire, Haute-Loire, Puy-de-Dôme and Rhône, Sodiaal is France's leading collector in mountain regions. 
    As such, the cooperative's presence in these difficult-to-reach areas helps to maintain an economic fabric 
    that is at times under threat from depopulation.
