Labels

Made in France
This certification gives consumers clear information about the origin of a product.
It meets three criteria of requirement:
  • The main ingredient by weight in the recipe must be of French origin;
  • Any ingredient representing more than 8% of the weight of the recipe must be of French origin;
  • The ingredient (s) appearing in the sales denomination and in the trade name must be French.
The ingredients used to manufacture products are almost exclusively French with the exception of some nuts, coffee and cocoa, which cannot be produced in France.
ISO 22000 - ISO TS 22002 certification
The food safety management system for Mon Pari Gourmand’s products has been awarded ISO 22000 certification by an independent body. This certification guarantees food safety and ensures that the company’s products meet the latest legal and regulatory requirements. The total traceability of the company’s confectionery is guaranteed, from the production of ingredients to customer delivery. Every company employee takes an active role in this process: for example, weekly bacteriological tests are carried out on industrial tools and on the hands of chocolatiers and confectioners.
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.

Collège Culinaire de France: quality artisan producer
The Collège Culinaire de France aims to promote gastronomy in all its societal dimensions.
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.
