Liquidation requested for the Chancelade mushroom farm in Dordogne

In five days, the Chancelade mushroom farm will know its fate. A hearing was held this Friday at the Périgueux commercial court, on the future of Champidor. In the absence of a buyer, the judicial administrator has requested liquidation. The court’s decision will be made Next Wednesday, July 10th.

No buyer has filed an application

The organic Paris mushroom producer has been in great difficulty for several monthset no buyer has filed a takeover application. “There was one who was very interested, but the deadline is too short”assures Pascal Serre, the mayor of Chancelade. He was hoping for a delay of five to six months, because according to him, a candidate was ready to put together a takeover file. “A financing plan, you have to go to the bank. He had started to see the opportunities, he had started to see with the customers”said the mayor. “I saw him on Monday, we worked with the chamber of commerce. He needed five to six months to put together his file.”

Pascal Serre regrets that the company did not look for a buyer sooner. Last April, the group had cut 17 jobs, and between 2022 and 2023, production was halved, due to an increase in costs and a drop in demand. If the court orders the compulsory liquidation of Champidor, 30 additional employees could be laid off.
