Heritage Food Brands
Heritage Food Brands is a group of different companies specialised in the production of high quality food products. In our group we have Biscuiterie Maison Bruyère (France), ROKA (Holland) and Chocolaterie Caluwé Artisan (Belgium). Biscuiterie Maison Bruyère is located in the South-West of France (Tarn) and is specialised in the production of premium artisan biscuits. All biscuits are still baked on paper which gives them a very unique texture. We only use the best ingredients, mainly with a French origin. In our assortment we have the famous Croquants de Cordes but also biscuits with salted caramel, with lemon, hazelnuts or violet flowers. We also have Vegan rolled wafers (Chalumeux d'Albi).
ROKA is specialised in the production of premium cheese biscuits. All biscuits are made on a base of puff pastry and have a very unique taste and texture. The taste is very unique because we only use real matured cheese (Gouda, Cheddar, Emmental, Parmiggiano Reggiano) and the texture is also very unique because in each biscuit you have 90 layers.
Chocolaterie Caluwé Artisan is a 3rd generation family owned company and specialised in the production of premium Belgian Chocolates. For our chocolates (pralines) we only use the best quality sustainable Belgian chocolate from Ivory Coast. Our Maitres Chocolatiers still make all fillings in house. We still cook all our caramels in open cupper kettles. We have a standard range of about 100 different chocolats.
SECRETS DE FAMILLE
Nous sommes deux soeurs, nées en centre Finistère et poussées par le désir de faire découvrir ce que notre région fait de meilleur. Sarah, "meilleure apprentie de France" en 1998, s'inspire de notre terroir et des recettes du monde pour proposer des saveurs créatives et innovantes, à utiliser frois ou chaud. Sandra, la commerciale, gère le développement de l'entreprise. Entourées de nos 6 salariés, nous fêtons nos 15 ans cette année.
Artisans du Monde
Solidar’Monde was created in 1984, on the initiative of the Artisans du Monde Federation. Central import and distribution of organic and fair trade products mainly for the Artisans du Monde associative network, Solidar’Monde is also found in other specialized networks, close to their values. The products come from developing countries and are marketed according to the principles of fair trade. For 40 years, the Artisans du Monde movement and Solidar’Monde have been building channels between producers in the south and consumers with the aim of developing responsible and sustainable trade.
To date, we distribute more than 250 food products: 100% Fair Trade certified / 90% Organic. You will find the best products of fair trade such as coffees, chocolates, sugar, quinoa, cereals, and also high quality products, delicious and innovative thanks to our meetings with producers with unique and traditional skills.
Solidar'Monde also has the mission of making consumers aware of the conditions of economic exchanges with these countries. Member of the European Fair Trade Association (EFTA) grouping 11 fair trade import centers in 9 countries, Solidar'Monde is also a member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
BISCUITERIE DE PROVENCE
La Biscuiterie de Provence is a family business with a history dating back to 1833 around local products from our region. Starting with truffles, Provence herbs, apricot kernels ... it is the almond that was and remains the common thread, transforming it in all its forms for more than 15 decades. Following the takeover in 1985 of a local recipe for almond crunchies, the Croquette de Vinsobres, the Bedouin family gradually refocused on the creation of cookies and cakes by combining almonds with multiple locally produced ingredients: flour wheat and small spelled, PDO Nyons olives, IGP Provence honey, IGP picodon ... Thus it has specialized in the manufacture of crunchy appetizers or sweet, navettes, canistrelli, shortbread, cookies, macaroons and of unique almond cakes guaranteed to be gluten-free. Since 2019, the acquisition of another beautiful house Le Petit Duc based on St Remy de Provence has widened the range to Provençal confectionery (calissons and nougats) and chocolate. Today, 100% of production is carried out in-house by our team of around thirty people in our factory located in Drôme Provençale in St Maurice sur Eygues. Based from the outset only on natural ingredients, the company has expanded over the past ten years to organic, which today represents nearly 40% of volumes. So you will find our specialties in many delicatessens or organic stores in France but also in several famous department stores around the world.
