Everything about the General Agricultural Competition

The General Agricultural Competition was first held in 1870 to select and recognise France's best regional products and breeding animals.

It is an age-old event with an eminently cutting-edge mission: to showcase the exceptional biodiversity in French breeding and gastronomy.

It serves as a unique launching pad for local products, dairy products and wines, and a showcase for the excellent qualities of French breeding. Candidates participating in the General Agricultural Competition benefit by acquiring more legitimacy within their profession and in the eyes of the general public.

It also raises awareness and singles out up-and-coming young professionals who are committed to agriculture.

Competitions include prizes for the best wine tasters and best livestock judges for students from agricultural schools.
