Impact, special achievements & commitmentsEN/FR

EPICE is a cooperative society for the distribution of organically grown food products to professionals.
Since its creation in 2010, EPICE has been promoting channels that are respectful of people and environment: local production, fair trade, smallholder agriculture and the Mediterranean basin terroirs.
In an effort to reduce their environmental impact, the employees carry out delivery rounds in the region, enabling them to combine delivery to its customers with supply from its producer partners, optimising travel. The consumables used are, whenever possible, ecological or recycled (cleaning products, paper, tape, cardboard, etc.) and the waste is sorted and recycled by a local company.
Finally, EPICE's company policy is based on respect, benevolence, solidarity and sharing; elements that are essential to the smooth running of its business and to the satisfaction of its customers.
2021 is the year of the creation of their brand, Elora, made up of products coming from channels corresponding to their values. It is natural that EPICE has undertaken the Fair for Life certification process in order to formalise its commitment to fair trade and sustainable development. The first certified products are cashew nuts from Togo and light cane sugar from Brazil.

EPICE est une société coopérative de distribution de produits alimentaires issus de l’agriculture biologique à destination des professionnels.
Depuis sa création en 2010, EPICE favorise les filières respectueuses de l’homme et de son environnement : productions locales, commerce équitable, agriculture paysanne et terroirs du bassin méditerranéen.
Dans une démarche de réduction de de leur impact environnemental, les salariés effectuent des tournées de livraison en région, permettant de coupler livraison de ses clients avec approvisionnement chez les partenaires producteurs, optimisant ainsi les déplacements. Les consommables utilisés sont, chaque fois que cela est possible, écologiques ou recyclés (produits d’entretien, papier, scotch, cartons etc…) et les déchets triés et valorisés par une entreprise locale.
Enfin, la politique d’entreprise d'EPICE est basée sur le respect, la bienveillance, la solidarité et le partage; éléments essentiels au bon fonctionnement de ses activité et à la satisfaction de ses clients.
2021 est l’année de création de leur marque, Elora, composée de produits issus de filières correspondant à leurs valeurs. C’est naturellement qu'EPICE a entreprit la démarche de certification Fair for Life afin d’officialiser son engagement pour le commerce équitable et le développement durable. Les premiers produits certifiés sont les noix de cajou du Togo et le sucre de canne blond du Brésil.
