Launched in 2022, the VAUD AMBASSADOR community brings together Vaudois companies, producers, and entrepreneurs. Its ambition? To develop innovative synergies and create a dynamic environment for encounters and development opportunities.

Labelled on the basis of 23 criteria, this community interacts, expands, and proudly displays the colours of the VAUD brand. We share common values that embody Vaudois excellence. We therefore contribute to the canton’s identity and reputation.
