Salt mountain and vines


Languedoc has historically been an agricultural economy and achieved little success in establishing a manufacturing base, other than for the production of preserved fruit and fish.

Previous industries have included salt production (initiated by the Romans and still active), Silk production (now virtually ceased), textile production, iron and steel production  and leather working. Coal mining was an important industry around Alés.

Today Languedoc has an expanding economical base, which includes -
  • computer software companies
  • high tec research centres
  • marine leisure industry
  • tourism
  • corporate head office locations
  • service companies 
  • distribution services
