The ELIXENS group's commitment to ethical and fair production

Since 2009, ELIXENS France is associated with BIOPARTENAIRE which proposes a universal fair trade approach whereas maintaining farmers in their activity represents a global stake, not only specific to world trade north-south. The agricultural world is heckled everywhere: declining productivity, speculation on commodities, market pressure, migration process. No country can today pretend not to know these phenomena. Faced with this observation, the companies involved in the BIOPARTENAIRE approach are mobilizing in France as well as internationally, to be motors of territorial development.

The label is universal today, mainly highlighting a sustainable partnership approach, and committing to it world-wide.

With regards to the Food Industry

We have always placed food safety at the heart of our concerns, in the time of our Flavors Division and after its sale, in 2017. Indeed, since 1994, our production site, Elixens France, had engaged in a voluntary approach to control the quality of its products and services. A step that resulted in obtaining the ISO 9001 certification for our quality management system in 1996, and in 2014 the hygiene and safety of your food products were guaranteed by the establishment of an ISO 22000 certification.

For the manufacture and marketing of our Aromatic Raw Materials for use in the food industry and in accordance with Regulation 178/2002 / EC laying down procedures relating to the safety of the food chain, traceability, information, notification and product tracking are scrupulously respected.
By validating the daily involvement of its staff in the prevention of food risks in the company, ELIXENS France is fully committed to the quality and safety policy of its products, conducted by the ELIXENS group for many years. The company joined a more demanding and efficient operating system, for the benefit of both its customers and its clients with:

- Improved communication with business partners based on a single audit platform,
