Tribute to Guy Paillotin

It was with deep sadness that the Carrefour Foundation has learnt of the death of Guy Paillotin, at the age of 76. Mr Paillotin was an administrator of the Carrefour Foundation since the beginning. Graduated from Ecole Polytechnique, engineer and doctor of physical sciences at University Paris XI-Orsay, Guy Paillotin was notably president of the National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) and of the Center for Agricultural Research for Developing countries (CIRAD).

It was a privilege for us to collaborate with him, as he was constantly contributing deep insight and understanding of the future of agriculture, especially by supporting the creation of a Biodiversity Program launched by the Foundation in 2017.

The Carrefour Foundation extends its most sincere condolences to the Paillotin family.
