Grandir, oui, mais comment ? Analyse de la concentration par fusions des coopératives vinicoles du Languedoc-Roussillon

Abstract : For nearly a century, cooperatives have played an important role in the agricultural and food industry in France. Since the early 1990s, concentration among agricultural cooperatives has markedly increased. The aim of our work is to analyse this process of concentration (through mergers and acquisitions) of agricultural cooperatives. Our empirical work is based on 14 mergers of cooperative wine producers in the Languedoc-Roussillon region between 2004 and 2010. The main findings show that there are different kinds of merger processes. Some mergers are simply an emergency measure to save failing businesses, while others respond to local policies. Lastly, some mergers are based on real strategic planning to achieve synergies between the cooperatives involved.
