Founded in 1989 by Robert Bonnet, Domaine des Coteaux is above all a major player in the production of peaches and nectarines, as well as apricots, cherries and kiwis in the French department of the Gard.
Committed to a sustainable and eco-responsible approach, Domaine des Coteaux set up an integrated fruit production in the 1990s. Since then, Domaine des Coteaux has developed while protecting the environment, multiplying certifications and labels to underline its commitment: High Environmental Value, Eco-responsible Orchards, Red Label, ZPR, Global Gap, Nurture, BRC, IFS...
The value is in the orchard
Innatis and Domaine des Coteaux share the same values and make it a priority to produce healthy fruit of good quality while being attentive to the environment.
Producers above all and committed to their employees, their objective is to keep the orchards alive, along with the men who work there, while adopting eco-responsible practices.
“Our pioneering spirit, our expert know-how and the particular attention we pay to nature brings us together. That is why this collaboration makes absolute sense,” explains Marc Rauffet.
The orchard is at the heart of the approach of Innatis and Domaine des Coteaux, which are both committed to the constant search for new varieties and the development of innovative production techniques.
In 2020, Domaine des Coteaux committed to the Red Label approach for some of its varieties of peaches, nectarines and apricots. This label designs products which, especially by their production conditions, have a superior level of quality.

“Renewal is in our nature”
30 years after its creation, Domaine des Coteaux has evolved and was able to adapt over the years with one goal in mind: to remain attentive to its clients in order to better meet their expectations. “Renewal is at the heart of our common approach and this collaboration will allow us to join forces in order to modernize and perpetuate our crops,” explains Nathalie Bonnet.
President and CEO since 2010, Nathalie Bonnet will continue to preside over and manage Domaine des Coteaux and will participate in the strategic council of Innatis.
