OUR STORY

MMvintage

MARC

Marc is the name of my grandfather. He was born in 1923 in Burgundy in the small village of Chemilly-sur-Yonne.

In the 50s, he cultivated on the lands of his childhood, his first pickles to provide a local cannery.

Formerly in the Yonne, the production of Cornichons was "a supplement" for families, who cultivated a few rows in their garden to sell them to the cannery. Then gherkins production became more professional and the department counted up to 35 producers.

FLORENT

In 1975, my father, Florent, settles on the family farm and increases the production of gherkins to meet the demand.

In 2009, in the face of globalization, Amora-Maille decided to buy supplies in India and closed the doors of its factory. All the big specialist industrial groups are relocating their production and the producers of French gherkins are disappearing.

But my father keeps it expensive to maintain this product of the French soil. He fights and becomes the last producer in France. Its gherkins will be resold "in fresh" to intermediaries.

HENRI

In 2012, I, Henri, have the immense honor to take over from my father and my grandfather.

The "made in France" is fashionable and 100% French pickles have completely disappeared, I decided to restart production.

My goal, sell to consumers more attentive to the origin and quality of products. There will be no intermediary! Our gherkins will be grown and packaged by us. It was at Chemilly-sur-Yonne, on the grounds of my grandfather's house, that I decided to build my own cannery.

We have to find a name, it will be : Maison Marc
