What is behind what is called Made in France?

Stricto sensu: Made in France is a manufacturing origin that companies can affix on their products if they are really made in France.

In the imagination of international consumers, Made In France covers a much broader reality. The notion of know-how is emphasized, as well as quality and elegance “à la française”, the reputation of gastronomy and great chefs. The famous “French touch”, a little something that differentiates and enhances!

Much more than just a reputation, Made in France is a guarantee of value in the minds of buyers.

And if today the success of the production of jam made in France was linked to the meeting of 2 worlds: craftsmanship and industry?

What is the Made in France craft?

Here is the strict definition of craftsmanship according to the French state : transformation of products thanks to a particular know-how. The craftsman ensures all the stages: from the transformation to the marketing of his product.

The use of the word “craftsmanship” is linked to manual manufacturing, an authentic production process.

For the production of jam therefore we could conclude that the assets of a production of artisanal jam and made in France would be: the respect of artisanal gestures and know-how related to human gestures.

What do industrial tools bring moreover to the production of jam ?

The human hand brings know-how and also variations and defects. It is moreover valued in the craft industry because it makes each product unique.

In order to guarantee efficiency, performance and ensure volumes, machines can perfectly find their place in the production chain and assist man in his activity.
The use of industrial tools or techniques allows to go on larger volumes with an interesting reliability. All this results in an important quality-price ratio for the consumer who today wants to have access to good products without going broke!
