Food for a more
sustainable world.

Bake for good

As a truly global activity, bread-making has an impact on our environment and our communities. With its total commitment to sustainability, Lesaffre works to provide customers with natural-origin ingredients, while also delivering on its commitment to protect the well-being of its employees, local communities and the environment.

Sustainable

We are changing things for the better to deliver on our environmental commitments. Every day, we take concrete actions to support sustainable agriculture, reduce our carbon footprint and encourage local production.

Clear

For today’s consumers, the ingredients in their food is a major issue. At Lesaffre, it has always been in our DNA to provide clear information about any additives and preservatives, and include as few ingredients as possible. Passionate about the power of fermentation, we support consumers who want their views and cultural beliefs to be reflected in their food choices.

Responsible

Along with our Corporate Social Responsibility work to protect the environment, we have always been committed to supporting our employees and helping communities where we operate. From business ethics to charity work, everyone at Lesaffre plays their part.

Our solutions

Clean label

Clean Label

The preference among consumers for food with fewer ingredients, and even fewer artificial ones, continues to gain ground. At Lesaffre, we are already responding to this trend by helping our customers to reduce their ingredient lists and promoting products of natural origin thanks to our bread-making yeasts, along with a dedicated range of dough improvers and shelf-life extenders.

Organic solutions

Organic solutions

Baking is no exception to the growing demand around the world for organic foods. We have a comprehensive range of yeasts, sourdoughs, and dough improvers and conditioners to meet the needs of artisan and industrial-scale bakeries. To comply with organic certifications, we ensure full traceability from raw materials to finished products.

Together, let’s create the products of the future

A tempting slice of the Mediterranean diet

 

Few ingredients

Many of today’s customers are looking for products that are tasty, but also simple. Focaccia is an ever-popular snack with only five ingredients — olives, olive oil, salt, flour and, of course, yeast.

 

Organic option
A marked trend among today’s consumers is to choose the organic option in the food they buy. At Lesaffre, we offer yeasts that are fully certified as organic.

 

Vegan lifestyle
A lifestyle choice, veganism is growing in popularity. And so is our yeast. By being vegan and organic, Lesaffre is also playing its part in a more sustainable future for all.
