One of our priorities is the quality of the products we offer. For each production site we count on a sorting and control department. Stocks and just-in-time computerised management guarantee the products freshness for our customers.
Organic certification, essential for our activity.
In addition to the sorting and visual or taste (sugar rate) notions, it is essential to us to ensure that all traded products comply with organic agriculture regulations.
We are organic certified by Ecocert, one the 9 authorised institutions for the control of organic products in France. In order to get this certification, we are audited one time per year minimum. This audits confirm that we work respecting the exigencies of the organic legislation in force.
This certification enables us to distribute our products with the AB label (French logo) and with the European organic logo; common to all European Union countries and that enables consumers to identify organic products.

More than 120 referencing and monitoring audits are carried out annually in France and abroad.
Exigencies are multiple, in terms of traceability, alimentary safety, work conditions, production methods, environmental respect…
A COMPLETE ANALYSIS PLAN
Based on origin/product risk and improved thanks to our experience and our health monitoring, our plan includes more than 350 product samples per year, meaning more than 700 analyses are carried out, with more than 550 analysed molecules.
A total of more than 350 000 analytical researches are carried out each year.
About 100% of our results are compliant, that is without any trace of pesticides/residues or under the research threshold.
