The total availability (beginning with the General Management) for everyone, hotline, flow engineering and the lasting human capital of all of our services are but some of the guarantees of our efforts to listen to and respond to the needs of our customers.
We’re pushing back the limits of taste and technology
Our position as Leader in the sector implies constant exploratory advances both in terms of taste and of technological ideals.
We undertake to innovate, in every sense of the word. Breakthrough and conceptual products, but also with no added sugar, clean label, organic fair trade... intended to support our customers as part of the permanent and positive stimulation of the market, for the benefit of the end-consumer.
Our Code of ethics is far-reaching and unequivocal
We are first and foremost consumers, as well as parents, spouses: responsible adults. We say what we’re doing, and we do what we’re saying.
We could never imagine any embezzlement or cheating. We never take advantage of an ambiguous situation.
Moreover, we see to the total confidentiality of all information that we may have to obtain from our customers and partners.
We also strive to maintain intelligent and common sense relations with the entire sector: our customers, as well as people who are not yet our customers, in addition to our competitors, trade unions and our suppliers.
