IPPAG looks to the future at 50
Members past and present helped the IPPAG Cooperative celebrate its 50th anniversary in the beautiful setting of Saint-Paul de Vence and Nice in the south of France.
Events included a two-day Open Forum about the future of the Cooperative and the industry, a 2CV rally through the countryside, a pétanque tournament and the 50th-anniversary gala dinner.
Florence Mosnier, IPPAG Cooperative general manager, commented: “We are very fortunate to count such brilliant minds and industry players in our group and evolving at their sides has been a privilege. Our 50th anniversary is an opportunity to honour the past with the presence of our ‘old tigers’ and look to the future with our Open Forum meetings exploring the true value of IPPAG.”
IPPAG Cooperative chairman Thibaut Fontaine added: “IPPAG is the greatest opportunity for its members coming from all over the world to exchange experiences, good suppliers and develop processes together. For example, we have made social audits in 67 factories in China. We have also more and more global clients we serve all together around the world.”
