Bleu-Blanc-Cœur: An example of sustainable economic development, from production to food processing, or from the soil to the table.
An agronomist and doctor of biology, Pierre Weill
, founder in 2000 of the Bleu-Blanc-Cœur association (health-oriented agriculture) is one of the three current co-presidents, and also an entrepreneur. A fervent defender of "global health", which concerns soils, plants, animals and people alike, he fights to change production methods and bring diversity back into the food chain, convinced that human health depends on the health of ecosystems. From 1995 to 2021, he has signed 78 articles in the peer-reviewed scientific press on these themes, as well as three monographs about healthy diet for a larger french audience. Holder of the "food and good eating" chair at the University of Rennes (France), in May 2022 he defended a PhD thesis in Biology-Health entitled "The health of animals and ecosystems benefits human health". There he resumed his many scientific works alongside technical institutes (INRA, INSERM, CNRS) which demonstrate the validity of the association's approach, now recognized by the State and the United Nations. And above all, it defines measures of links between health, from "soil to blood" so that the concept of "global health" is not a hollow idea but serves to respond to the major challenges of tomorrow.
