Bernard Hidier

Bonjour! I have recently relocated to Maine after seventeen years in the UK with my wife and two daughters and we are about to reunite three generations under the same roof—much in the same way I was raised in my little dairy farming community off the west coast of France (La Vendée). Professionally, I keep working towards designing, building and financing tailor-made circular economy partnerships at the crossroads between sustainable food production and renewable energy. I believe that it is the right time, for a new positive, generous and global kind of Franco/French identity, one to be built on new, renewed and robust foundations around sustainability, innovation and protection as well as inclusion and diversity. One which honours our varied histories—while never losing sight of our shared future.
