ADEPALE is one of the leading professional federations in the food industry. It currently brings together 1,570 production sites, mainly SMEs and ETIs, through six trade unions, in the grocery (preserves, jams, compotes, rice, dried vegetables), fresh (fresh delicatessen products, 4th range vegetables) and frozen food sections. The unions within ADEPALE share the same team and the same membership service, defending the interests of companies in their sectors on a daily basis.

Alpes Supply Chain brings together supply chain players in the Alps to help them reduce the environmental and social impact of their activities. The association organises around twenty events a year, including training, webinars, visits, conferences and collaborative workshops.

Multi-sectoral and resolutely multimodal, the AUTF's action is part of a global approach to improving the economic and environmental performance of transport chains in the interests of business competitiveness and regional attractiveness.


In 2022, the CNA will bring together a community of 18,000 directors, purchasing managers and buyers, representing over €300 billion worth of purchasing in companies (VSEs, SMEs, ETIs, CAC 40s) and the public sector (ministries, local authorities, hospitals). It brings together and provides its 18,000 members with expertise, experience sharing and a powerful professional network on a national scale and across its 11 regions.

The CNA:

→ Supports directors, purchasing managers and buyers in meeting the challenges of the purchasing function,

→ Promotes internal and external resources in companies and the public sector,

→ Contributes to improving the quality of supplier relations through the "Responsible Supplier Relations and Purchasing" (RFAR) Charter and Label,

→ relies on a team of permanent staff and volunteers, to carry the colours of the Purchasing function loud and clear.

Aware of the need to help companies better integrate environmental issues into their logistics strategy, the AUTF and ADEME have launched FRET 21 to enable all types of companies to implement concrete actions aimed at limiting the impact of their transport on the climate.
