BLEU_BLANC_COEURBleu Blanc CoeurThe Blue-White-Heart approach was born between 1993 and 2000, from a simple observation made by a dairy farmer, Jean Pierre Pasquet to an agricultural engineer, Pierre Weill. He explained to him that he noticed that in the spring, when his cows were in pasture grass, they were in better shape, and the butter he made was softer and more spreadable than in winter.

Together, they created an agriculture committed to a sustainable and social approach with breeders eager to feed their fellow citizens.

ORIGINE_FRANCE_GARANTIEOrigine France GarantieThe Origine France Garantie certification was created in June 2010 following the publication of Yves Jégo's report on the France brand. The certification, simple and understandable by all, is the result of a collective approach of actors who wish to work together to promote the "produce in France" and the valorization of industrial and artisan know-how. The Pro France association which promotes Origine France Garantie is made up of business leaders supporting this initiative. Its goal is: Give clear and precise information to the consumer about the French origin of the products Make known the companies that manufacture in France The Origine France Garantie certification distinguishes itself from other mentions such as "made in France", "designed in France", "Made in France" ... which are self-declarative and too loose. Origine France Garantie is the only certification that certifies the French origin of a product. It is transversal (all sectors combined) and indisputable (certification, mandatory, is carried out by an independent certifying body). The Origine France Garantie certification ensures consumers traceability of the product by giving a clear and objective indication of origin. Certification is achieved through two cumulative criteria that companies must meet to obtain it: Between 50% and 100% of the unit cost is French The product takes its essential characteristics in France
