Following the tragedy that occurred in Lebanon on 4 August, VIVESCIA Group, its 10,500 cooperative members, and its 7,500 employees, are proud to be associated with this gesture of solidarity. Thanks to the extraordinary response and commitment of Grands Moulins de Paris's teams, it was possible to have 75 tonnes of flour sent to Toulon port in record time. 

In total, French millers donated 500 tonnes of wheat flour to the Lebanese population in an operation coordinated by the French professional milling association (ANMF).

French helicopter carrier, LE TONNERRE, left Toulon naval base on Sunday 9 August with a first shipment of 250 tonnes headed for Lebanon. A second shipment will make the same journey on Tuesday 11 August.
