The role of the Cooperative is to store, prepare (screen, dry, grind), condition and market the salt while respecting demanding quality standards and strong human values. The pooling of resources, the cooperative spirit and the involvement of everyone are essential to the proper functioning of the Cooperative.

The role of the Cooperative is also to develop the profession thanks to a program of revival of the activity based on 3 axes:

  • - Training and installation of young salt farmers,
  • - The reclaim and restoration of undeveloped salt marshes. Access to salt marsh land to gain production space,
  • - The valorization of the harvested salt.

Because the salt farmers are passionate about nature and their work depends above all on our "nourishing sea", the wind and the sun, being a Cooperative of Salt Farmers of Ré Island implies acting in favor of the environment.
