Is French alternative agriculture viable in comparison with the actual main model?[Research paper] by Laure Cassaigne


The author graduated from ESCP Europe in 2010.

French agriculture is as criticized as it is admired. French people can eat more and better than ever, thanks to improvements in technology. But, French agriculture is also a polluting sector which needs a lot of energy and the government subsidies from the ntion and from the EU. It seems necessary to rethink this model, which is not viable in economical or ecological terms. Alternative agriculture, whether organic, sustainable or from small farmers, claims to be able to take up the challenge to be more efficient and less costly, offering a low price for consumers and giving a good salary for farmers. That is why we will try to answer the question: “Is French alternative agriculture viable in comparison with the actual main model?” Indeed, it is interesting to study this agriculture to know whether its socio-economic model is really viable and more favorable for French society. In this way, it will be possible to deliberate on such a sensitive subject.
