MADE IN FRANCE
CIACAM has been involved for several years in the development of the french pulses industry in partnership with the main french cooperatives,
as well as private partners.
To date, nearly 40% of the volumes produced in our factories are french products.
These partnerships have enabled us to develop the french organic farming industry with a complete range of products that are increasingly sought after by our customers. These "made in France" are more and more appreciated by the consumer and to allow CIACAM to guarantee proximity, reliability and security.
This approach is also part of sustainable development with a reduction in our carbon footprint.
