The SICA COUFIDOU was born in 1964. It was one of the first co-operative enterprise of commercialization of the Agen prune, which gathered the producers of Sainte-Livrade-sur-Lot (47) and of the neighbouring towns.
It started with some 20 members with a production of 300 tons a year. From the beginning, it diversified its activity by producing (along with the prunes, prune curd and prune juice) dainties and prunes with soft centers. It directed its distribution towards retail trade.
The corporation followed a parallel course in 1977 by entering supermarkets and developing export.
In 1989 the corporation grew in a major way with the creation of the “Union des Pruniculteurs de France” (UPF) which gathered 5 producer co-operative societies (COUFIDOU, COOPESI, FRUALE, PRUCOT and COPRUMON).
Thanks to the contribution of capital of the new members, COUFIDOU produced 3,000 tons a year for 80 producers.
Its production varied again with brandy fruit and chocolate coated prunes.
In the same year, COUFIDOU acquired the SARL (limited liability company) BUTTIFRUITS and opened a factory shop which sold sold the products of the factory and a range of local products.That is how COUFIDOU started selling dry fruit in 2003.
