Quality and safety
Mon Pari Gourmand’s pursuit of excellence has led to a constant focus on quality: its Origine France Garantie label, recognising the company’s French manufacturing of French ingredients, and ISO FSSC 22000 certification guarantee the origin, traceability and food safety of products.
With its product lines which are made with no artificial colours*, with no artificial flavours** and with no palm oil, this family-run company offers a range of simply delicious products.
*excluding chardons liqueurs and coloured decorations for chocolates.

This certification enables Mon Pari Gourmand to work with companies with particularly high food safety standards and to export its products all over the world.

Its ambition is to raise awareness and to showcase the economic, social and cultural impacts of French gastronomy, along with its realities in terms of the environment and public health. The dynamics and issues of these impacts and realities are often little known.
As a member of the Collège Culinaire de France, Mon Pari Gourmand believes that we are all responsible for sharing and embodying the values of these realities.
“Quality artisan producers” make up a vital (if largely insufficiently utilised) category within France’s professional population.
