Gastronome was created in 2000 by the merger of Synavi and Soparvol
The Terrena group was formed by the merger of two western France co-operatives in January 2000:
- Cana (Coopérative Agricole de la Noëlle d'Ancenis)
- Caval (Coopérative Agricole Vienne Anjou Loire).
Cana and Caval each had a poultry subsidiary, named Soparvol and Synavi respectively. The merger of Soparvol and Synavi formed the Gastronome group.
In 2001, Gastronome increased in size with the acquisition of a majority stake in the bankrupt Bourgoin Group .
In 2008, continuing its strategy for growth, Gastronome acquired the majority of the operations of Unicopa, a co-operative based in Brittany.
