production and boasts more than 18,000 food
companies nationwide. France is a top exporter

Serge Lhermitte, a representative from the
Ministry of Agriculture, was on hand to present the risk management situation for French
producers regarding climate change and the
subsidized insurance system. Yann le Goaster,
Director of the Fédération des Grands Vins
de Bordeaux (FGVB) and Chistophe Chateau,
Communication Director at the Consell Inter-professional du Vin de Bordeaux (CIVB),
explained the characteristics of viticulture in
Bordeaux. Arnaud Chneiweiss, representative
of the Fédération Française de l'Assurance FFA,
gave an impressive presentation on the change
in the insurance market and its services since
the 19th century. The French crop insurance

market is relatively small, with less than a dozen companies operating in the country. Crop
insurance covers approximately 30 and 31 percent of French agricultural land in relation to
hail and multiple risks, respectively.
