Suze: protecting regional production
Pernod & CRPR
A pioneer of gentian cultivation, Pernod has joined an interprofessional organization for gentian preservation to conserve and promote this resource vital to the production of Suze. With the support of an INRA(1) team in Dijon, the Centre de Recherche Pernod Ricard has conducted a ten-year research project to promote gentian cultivation on a larger scale. Pernod opted for a field replanting technique and seeds being sown directly in the field.
