Ever since its foundation, LÉA NATURE has contributed to establishing a new natural and organic production model, that is affordable, efficient and profitable. It is pursuing its development in terms of sustainable dynamics at the very heart of the southeast and southwest of France.
In 22 years, LÉA NATURE created 880 jobs and contributed to developing positive economic performance with yearly sales growing steadily.
With a view to facilitating employment conditions in our area, we reach out to schools and job seekers by organizing open house days at our headquarters: once a month, we welcome visitors and offer a guided tour of our facilities to school children, professional organisations and associations, or regional schools we are partnering with. We also take part in 5 professional recruitment trade shows per year.
Throughout the year, we also work with 6 local nonprofit occupational reinsertion organisations (Établissements et Services d’Aide par le Travail – ESAT) including ADAPEI in Bords-Rochefort, to fill food and cosmetic boxes (25,000 boxes prepared in 2014), promotional sticker application, or the assembly and wrapping of gift boxes. In 2014, this partnership amounted to 12,000 hours of work (or 240 days).
We also privilege partnerships with raw material and external suppliers that are located close to LÉA NATURE headquarters or production facilities.
LÉA NATURE’S objective is the sustainable development of French organic, agro-ecological and local agriculture with a view to social solidarity.
Since its inception in 1993, the Group has chosen is raw materials suppliers in terms of sustainability and social solidarity, by privileging partnerships with local producers and cooperatives.
LÉA NATURE collaborates with nearly 1000 organic farmers in France, through cooperatives. This approach facilitates the expansion of organic farmland and increased biodiversity. The Group also works with 11 non European organizations of certified organic and fair-trade producers.
