Tomorrow, French farmers will feed 70 million French people in increasingly difficult climate conditions. Accor is a partner and co-founder of the 'Agriculteurs d'Avenir" competition (Farmers of the Future). The finalists have been announced and you have until 10 October to vote for your favourite farming project. 

The 'Agriculteurs d'Avenir" competition (Farmers of the Future) is under the patronage of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food and aims to speed up innovation in favour of more sustainable agricultural models that respect both people and the environment. 

Its goals:


  • To quickly fund the implementation of innovative agroecology and agroforestry projects that were selected for their quality and impact.
  • To inspire dedication, innovation and change among established and future farmers. To demonstrate and make it known that a new farming model is possible
  • To encourage meetings between farmers and competition partners in order to create synergy and new collaborations within with the agri-food sector

Vote for your favourite among the 45 finalists 


After receiving over 280 applications, a jury of experts selected 45 sustainable farming projects that will be funded around our hotels. It's up to you to choose your favourite from among these projects. All farming practices are represented: bee-keeping, breeding, market gardening, grape cultivation, etc. It's also possible to find projects close to home by filtering by region or choosing products that may be of interest to our guests.
