75 years of a family story.

75 years of a family story.

Les vergers Boiron is a real passionate family business established in 1942.
My grandfather founded an initial fruit trading business in Ardèche south of France, and rapidly moved to Paris in Rungis, still the reference wholesale market today for fresh fruits and vegetable in France.

In the early seventies, Pierre, my father, launched major innovations 
Les vergers Boiron first created a new fruit processing activity - heat-treated specifically to each fruit, then deep frozen - which is the best technique, even today, to keep flavor, texture and freshness of the fruit intact. First passion fruit purée without added sugar only containing sugar naturally present in fruit was roll out.
He also developed an innovative packaging such as the thermo-formed tray.
Pastry Chefs enthusiastically welcomed these ready-to-use fruit puree as they were looking for practical products, of constant quality and available all year long.

I joined the company in 2005. One of my first missions was to develop the international business and reinforce the quality standards to obtain the international certifications. 

In 2009, we moved to a new site, in Valence, in the Rhône valley, where the production facility was already located. We are now all located at the heart of one of the largest orchards in France. Our High Environmental Quality (HEQ) site - a first in our sector - illustrates the implementation of our sustainable development policy in line with our values of respect and progress. 
We constantly work with new fruits to fuel the creativity of pastry chefs, ice-cream makers, chocolate makers and confectioners who have trusted us for years but also chefs, caterers and bartenders. 
We passionately assist food professionals, offering high value-added products and also services and advices in more than 70 countries in 5 continents. 

Today, we are proudly celebrating 75 years of fruit expertise and our expansion continues worldwide.

President, Boiron Frères SAS
