Advocating delicious, healthy and responsible fruit is the mission that Ponthier has set itself to inspire its employees, producers, customers and partners. The fruit manufactured in its workshops, which have been based in Corrèze since 1946, will sustainably contribute to Human well-being and the preservation of Nature. To fuel its quest to preserve the original taste and benefits of fruit, the company sources and selects the finest origins and varieties from traceable, controlled supply chains. Beyond taste, Ponthier also seeks to contribute to social progress within its organisation and among its stakeholders, as well as reduce the environmental impact of its activity's value chain. Made using simple, natural recipes, its fruit and vegetable purees, crushes and compotes are available to all culinary professionals around the world for use in sweet or savoury dishes and drinks.
