Les Vergers Du Mékong was founded in 2000 in Vietnam by the eco-entrepreneur and alpinist Jean-Luc VOISIN. From the beginning, he made a clear choice for a long-term sustainable development by promoting sustainable farming, local sourcing and producing natural products. Les Vergers Du Mékong has a unique business model 'from the farm to the fork' which helped them creating a Sustainable Value Chain. Real sustainability can only be achieved when all parts of the food supply chain work together and integrate small farmers in the food value chains. Sourcing for shared value reinforces the company’s contribution to preserving the environment; revitalizing rural communities; improving the living standards of family farmers and help the company produce healthy and traceable products. Les Vergers Du Mékong creates the most luscious juices, exotic jams, finest Vietnamese coffee and organic tea. They work on the complete traceability to control the quality of the farm, the crop and the ingredients. They seek to create and promote great-tasting, healthier food & drinks under their ‘farm fresh’ brands LE FRUIT and FOLLIET. LE FRUIT juices and jams and FOLLIET coffee and tea are distributed in Vietnam and Cambodia and in selected foreign countries in gourmet shops, hotels, resorts and cafes.
