SHOWCASING MADE IN FRANCE
Cereals and pulses are above all about their region of origin, which is sometimes difficult to reproduce elsewhere. As such, opting for a maximally organic and French supply is a courageous and militant choice. Yet this is what the Priméal brand does, by seeking to favour local ingredients for its recipes and by supporting biodiversity in the regions. PGI Einkorn from Haute-Provence, PGI Camargue rice, PDO chestnuts from Ardèche, hemp from the South-West, green beans or peas... These local crops are essential to biodiversity, to the life of the different French regions, and to the variety of our food.
Since its creation, Priméal has decided to invest in production tools in France and to establish privileged relationships with French farmers and producers. A commitment dictated by the desire to guarantee the quality, price and traceability of our products, but also to promote the know-how of passionate local producers and to contribute to the creation and stability of jobs in the regions.
FIRST AND FOREMOST A MANUFACTURER!
Priméal has 9 production units across France, each located as close as possible to its supply areas. This helps us reduce distances and stay close to producers. We process or package 3/4 of Priméal's products at these manufacturing sites.
