The hexagon is number one of the countries exporting seeds! Indeed, during the 2012-2013 season, France exported 1.42 billion euros worth of seeds, an increase of 15% in front of the United States and the Netherlands. A good performance that represents, according to professionals in the sector, the equivalent of a sale of 20 Airbus A320s! Maize and sunflower are the seeds that export the most, both in volume and in value, they alone total 776 million euros, more than half of total exports. More than 150 countries import French cereals. The European Union remains the leading client area and accounts for 70% of exports. And sales are up 20% in the Maghreb and 12% in Sub-Saharan Africa. The American continent meanwhile is sulking French cereals and the turnover of imports falls by 22.4 million euros in the United States and 38.5 million in South America.
Victory for Roquefort! Thursday, December 12, the Minister of Agriculture, Guillaume Garot, announced that Brazil had just lifted the embargo on the famous French cheese! It was during François Hollande's state visit to Brasilia that this ban was lifted. A decision that takes effect immediately since the health certificate necessary for the importation of Roquefort was signed the same day. Since 2010 French sheep's cheese was no longer welcome on the plates of Brazilians for health issues such as the temperature of cheese maturation and the control of raw milk and animal. The coordinator of certificates of animal products of the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Clovis Serafini, is proud to have reached a technical consensus with the hexagon. This lifting of the embargo will allow an improvement in agri-food relations between the two countries. France and Brazil have also signed the first administrative arrangement in the agricultural sector. An important decision in the discussions for the free trade agreement between the European Union and Mercosur. The first operational meeting of this arrangement will take place in Q1 2014.
Success for "The Revenants"! After winning the trophy for the best drama series during the ceremony of the International Emmy Award in New York, the series broadcast by Canal Plus won the Export Award 2013 on December 9th. This prize rewards French fiction that has sold best abroad this year. '' The ghosts '' tells the story of a village lost in the middle of the Alps. Several inhabitants, who died years ago, come back to their loved ones in the flesh. With a plot worthy of an American series, this fiction has become the new symbol of these French series that work internationally to the image of "Braquo" and "Gears." For Canal Plus, the final challenge is more important than the reward: the channel has made these fictions one of the strategic pillars Producing original programs allows Canal + to cope with more and more competitors like BeIN Sport in sports rights, or Netflix, the platform video on demand, which should land in 2014 in France.
