Market
Calipso find the best opportunities for the production of its members through its marketing UCARA union (Union of Agricultural Cooperatives of the Abbeville Area).

Thus, UCARA sells annually 220,000 to 250 000 tonnes, including 200 000 tonnes from Calipso and our 2 subsidiaries Wholesalers.
The great majority of our wheat is sold to the human food, milling and starch industry.

In addition, most of our wheat go through one of the three major ports of northern France: Senalia, Dunkerque and other ports of Rouen.

Most of cereals loaded into these ports share to countries of North Africa. They are therefore subject to quality standards required by these countries, including a high level of protein, PS, W, P/L and time of Hagberg falling.
