The plastic food container, a product fully adapted to the needs of the agri-food industry

Founded in 1833, we were the very first perfume flower distillers (as a boilermaker) in the French town of Grasse, which is famously associated with perfume production. We have since expanded and developed our activities to become a manufacturer of stills and a specialist in distillation and extraction processes serving the chemical industry.

We today offer the most comprehensive range of packaging products on the market, enabling us to meet the needs of the various different business sectors from which our industrial client base is drawn.  The unique know-how we have developed over the years ensures that our various industrial agro-food packaging products offer the very best in terms of quality and safety.

We invite you to discover our completely agro-food industry adapted packaging: the plastic food container.


The transportation of food products requires agro-food packaging properly suited to the physical form of the products. Whether it’s liquids, solids or other substances in other forms (spices, seeds, powders, etc.), the use of plastic packaging offers numerous advantages, especially the plastic food container.

Our plastic packaging products are very robust and provide extremely effective protection for your foodstuffs. They ensure excellent hygiene conditions and are characterised by their lightness, which stands them in stark contrast to aluminium packaging, which can weigh a substantial amount.

All the plastic packaging we produce is made primarily of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), a very light material that provides considerable packaging strength and eliminates all risk of corrosion.


Because its products are destined for human consumption, the food industry has its own specific and particular requirements. This is the reason why food packaging has to conform to strict standards. Because it does not alter the properties of its contents, the plastic food container offers the ideal solution, both in terms of cleanliness and hygiene levels and with respect to isolating and preserving the properties of foodstuffs.

Additionally, our plastic containers are equipped with efficient closures to ensure optimal impermeability.

And finally, because it is easy to manoeuvre by hand, the plastic container offers genuine ease of handling for food transportation purposes.
