In order to realize our environmental ideals and to reflect the company’s ideology, in 2009 we have built a green building with positive energy thanks to 1900m² of photovoltaic panels. The Structure is made of untreated and local wood and boxes filled with straw cultivated in the South of France provides our insulation. Everything has been thought through to reduce to its minimum the environmental impact throughout the construction. On top of that, the building allows us to minimize our electrical needs: our offices face south in order to benefit from the natural light and warmth; water sanitation is heated by our solar panels; a geothermal pump and a dual-flow ventilation enables air conditioning using barely any electricity.
Rainwater is collected to fill a pond which we use to water our ornamental plants: we are indeed creating a demonstrational garden around our building with a wide variety of plants and tree, a true haven for plants to stimulate local biodiversity.
Little by little we are creating a pleasant and healthy working place, using only noble and chemical-free materials, indoor fresh air renewal, while still improving our efficiency: the building is an extraordinary industrial tool. We are fully equipped with a lab, two storage rooms at constant temperature, spacious and luminous offices, an area specially made for machinery, and various processes such as freezing, steam-sterilization, vacuum packaging that we strive to keep on improving.
