All banana shallots sold solely by TERRYLOIRE / CAFPAS
In the north of the Vienne, in the Haut-Poitou, there is a unique type of product being grown: the Cuisse de Poulet du Poitou banana shallot. It is an elongated, slight bulged copper coloured bulb vegetable.
Since 2011, twelve farmers and one cooperative have been reviving this product and have committed to the specifications governing the Cuisse de Poulet du Poitou banana shallot bearing the ’sign‚ Poitou-Charentes’ quality mark.
With this approach to quality, you are guaranteed a variety that has been specially selected and is typical of the Cuisse de Poulet du Poitou banana shallot. For this product, the industry guarantees the traceability of seeds right up to point of sale. Its production, rooted in the clay-limestone soils around the Mirebeau commune and the neighbouring communes has made it an emblem for the whole of the Haut-Poitou and Clain.
Today, all the banana shallots produced are sold by TERRYLOIRE, the result of the merger of two cooperatives: CAFPAS and La Reinette Fruitière.
