Origine France Garantie for Vicat concrete
In 2017, Vicat was the first company in its field to be granted Origine France Garantie (guaranteed French) certification for its concrete manufacturing business. Issued by independent body Pro France, the distinction recognizes E61not just 100% French know-how but also an industrial policy favoring short supply chains in a circular economy.
The Béton Vicat business was awarded Origine France Garantie certification for a renewable three-year period in November 2017, after independent auditing. This step recognizes the Frenchness of our know-how, like that of Louis Vicat, 200 years after he revealed the mysteries of artificial cement in 1817.
The distinction also underlines our community focus and our desire to be a local partner in your daily activities by developing short supply chains in a circular economy.
Origine France Garantie certification was created in 2010 to enable brands and manufacturers to highlight the fact that they are French and that they use French know-how. Two conditions must be met: at least 50% of the unit cost price of the product must have been paid in France, and the essential characteristics of the product must be French
« This is the result of a procedure that applauds 100% French production. The certification represents the work we do for our customers, at all levels, on a daily basis.», Laurent, manager, Béton Vicat.
