The Guaranteed French Origin (OFG) label promoted by the Pro France association is based on a stringent standard drawn up in 2011. Guaranteed French Origin reassures consumers that products bearing the logo were manufactured in France. This guarantee, validated by a certifying body, is based on a specification made up of two cumulative criteria:
Applicants undertake to adhere to the social, environmental and health standards in force. The list of products currently recognised as OFG is available from www.nosachatsfrançais.com
The NF Hygiene-Alimentaire certification stems from a voluntary initiative by manufacturers. This standard applies to equipment intended for mass catering and bakery-confectionery refrigerated equipment. It recognises the quality of the products, certified by AFNOR, a specialised body.
NSF International is an independent certification body committed to public health, safety and environmental protection. The NSF mark certifies that a product has been recognised as complying with the international food industry standards.
Manufacturers undergo strict assessment, products are tested and factories spot-checked.
The NSF standard is based on products that can be easily cleaned. It vouches for the company’s commitment to quality, product compliance and consumer safety.
The CE marking demonstrates the compliance of products with the requirements laid down to manufacturers by the European Union. It entitles products to free movement throughout the European Union and the right to be used therein.
The European Directive relating to the CE marking relates in our profession to low voltage electrical appliances, appliances emitting electromagnetic waves, machines and gas appliances. The CE mark is compulsory for these products.
ISO 50001 certification is a management tool that enables evaluation of a company’s energy expenditures, implementation of an energy consumption metering plan, improvement of energy performances, and innovation in investment choices. This certification entails the involvement of our entire factory and therefore concerns all our products manufactured in Tournus. We have been working on enhancement of our manufacturing processes and the optimisation of efficiency of the energy consumption of our machines. The Building Management System has been modernised, with more efficient management of lighting and heating. Implementation of this ambitious plan aims to achieve a 20% energy saving by 2020. The more rationalised use of energy will contribute to the development of a sustainable and efficient operation, preserving the environment and natural resources, while at the same time contributing to the company’s competitiveness

Longtime validates our ability to develop products “designed to last over time”.
This implies that they are robustly designed, easy to repair, and that sensitive parts (fans, boards, electronics, etc.) are easily accessible and replaceable. The availability of after-sales parts, even more than 10 years after the sale of the product, and the quality and accuracy of documents, manuals and spare parts catalogs are decisive criteria in obtaining this label.
This label applies to Roll’Service, Roll’Fresh, Temp’Up and Oreo2 and Oreo3 self-services.
