Ever-popular French baking know-how

Our approach ? Naturalness and Sustainability...

And also tradition and Authenticity, Convenience and Home baking. Life-styles are changing. People's diets are changing too. To meet new consumer expectations, in 2019 we launched our “Go Clean” Programme: sustainable, simple recipes containing ingredients that everyone recognises, with less salt and sugar, and which are in line with current trends (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, super foods, etc.)

The fight against food waste 

We have been distributing products to various food banks, hospitals and schools for many years. To go a step further, we created our “No Waste, All Taste” programme. We asked chefs to create recipes to help customers recycle the previous day’s bread and viennoiserie products. In the same vein, we have established partnerships with the “Too Good to Go” application in France, Italy, and Belgium. Several hundred food baskets are saved every year thanks to this partnership… thereby preventing several thousand tonnes of CO2 emissions!
