Pink Himalayan salt, manuka honey, Tibetan goji berries, coconut sugar ...

But what is the link between all these products?     
  • A true origin at first. Looking for the rare and unknown product, almost forgotten with unsuspected properties. Listening to the peoples of the world, understanding them, learning from them in all humility and working hand in hand with producers in respect and mutual benefit through the channels we create.     
  • Unique properties proven by the traditional medicines of the peoples who discovered them centuries ago, but also and especially proved by modern science. The Comptoirs et Compagnies product do not have supposed "virtues", they have scientifically proven beneficial properties. They improve your daily life. They work.     
  • Innovative products, which we introduced for the majority of them on the French market for the first time. We are pushing the doors to let you see the unique and exceptional character of these products, which we believe deserve to be discovered, worn and defended.     
  • An exceptional taste, because if the adage "our food is our medicine" is obvious, we are convinced that the pleasure of the palate must be at the rendezvous to inscribe this approach in the long term.

Unique channels for unique products

Our goal is to offer you every day natural products, wild or organic, little or not processed to stay closer to what nature has offered us. At "Comptoirs", we consider that there is no need to denature, damage or "make-up" so rare and exceptional effectiveness products. Why should we try to improve what nature has already done to perfection?

Our job is to discover and rigorously select these raw materials in their country of origin, set up partnerships with producers and drastic controls in order to guarantee you optimum quality and unfailing security. Then we assemble these fruits, spices, honeys before packing them as respectfully as possible by putting forward clearly on our packaging, their properties and guarantees that we give you on their exceptional qualities.

Valuing French know-how

We are also committed to valorizing French know-how and local sectors: today, 98% of the products we offer are packaged or manufactured in France.

Our commitments

At Comptoirs et Compagnies, we are committed to provid you quality products that are excellent in taste and exceptional efficiency proven by modern science.
This constant search for excellence is expressed through the products we offer, but also by our strong commitments:

Transparency is part of the DNA of Comptoirs et Compagnies

We want our customers to have absolute guarantees about the quality of the products they buy. Our motto: "You have the right to ask for guarantees! ".

To do this, we clearly indicate the origins of the packaging of our products and the guarantees we give you on the excellence of their nutritional profiles. We make available on our website all the test reports on our manuka IAA® honey and our organic goji berries. To go even further, we have set up since 2015 a QR Codes system positioned directly on manuka honey pots and packs of organic goji berries. Each of you can check the actual activity of his manuka honey and the non-pesticide content of his goji berries, directly in-store before buying. This is a unique approach to the world that no other supplier of manuka honey or organic goji berries has adopted.

Working directly with producers

In order to guarantee a constant quality of our products and stable prices despite fluctuating harvests from one year to the next, we have created our own channels of direct supply with producers in Tibet, New Zealand, Turkey etc. ...

We are clearly committed to a fair trade approach by financing our producers before harvesting and at the prices they ask for. The raw materials we are looking for are of such a rare quality that we refuse to negotiate prices downwards. It is on the quality of the product that we are intransigent. Our economies are at other levels, eliminating all the intermediaries between us and the producers, for example.

The creation of these unique sectors is today a force that allows us to offer each year a constant quality at the best prices available on the market: we have for example the cheapest offer in Europe in active manuka honey .

Made in France

Manuka honey from New Zealand, Tibetan goji berries, pink Himalayan salt ... our raw materials are endemic to distant regions, but we are committed to valorizing French know-how.

Thus, 98% of the products we offer are packaged or made in France, Provence, Alsace, Loire Atlantique etc ...

Carbone compensation

To be able to offer exceptional products of a unique quality, we rigorously select rare and endemic raw materials from their often distant countries.

The distance between these quality products and us can not be reduced, we decided to set up a process to offset our carbon footprint 100%.

The principle is that all our carbon consumption related to the transport of our raw materials and finished products is calculated and then converted into "carbon credits". The purchase of these carbon credits helps finance a project that avoids a similar amount of CO2 emissions. This project is carried out by an independent body which has the status of an NGO.

This year, we are participating in the Qori Q'oncha project in Peru. For more information on this project, click here: http://www.co2solidaire.org/fr/projets/perou/cuiseurs-a-bois-economes.html
