Jean-Marc Nozeran’s experience is fully in line with Agronutris’ desire to achieve industrial excellence by placing human dynamics at the heart of its strategy.

“Jean-Marc Nozeran, with his extensive experience in an industry as demanding as the automotive industry, his humility and his visceral attachment to a new generation of agile companies based on trust, is the ideal person for an adventure like ours.” – Mehdi Berrada, co-founder of Agronutris.

For me, Agronutris is a company with all the qualities and collective intelligence to become a leader in its field. Its mission to “Nourish and Preserve” touches on my deepest values. I’ve long been aware of Mehdi’s commitment to create a company whose mission is harmoniously aligned with the development of the people who make it up and the ‘care’ of its entire environment. His ‘enlightened’ humanism is contagious! Over the last 5 years, I’ve also got to know the Agronutris team and its passionate creators. It’s a real pleasure to be able to follow them more closely and make my own contribution to this adventure.” – Jean-Marc Nozeran.
