Family History


Family business in handcrafted production of fruit and vegetable juices and nectars.

Located in the countryside near Lyon, in France, Patrick Font takes over the farm of his parents in 1986 then transforms it into a workshop of handcrafted production of fruit Juices and Nectars since 1993.

By emphasising local products and excellence, he manages to develop recipes that sublimate the qualities of thoroughly selected raw materials.

Since then, Romain, Patrick’ son, has brought every day his own contribution as ambassador to develop the brand awareness of Patrick Font’s company.

Together, Father and Son contribute to create a fruit juices collection, rich in flavours and available in the most beautiful places in France or abroad …

Know how & Careful Selection


The selection of our fruits and vegetables is based on three major criterias: local origin, variety and harvest in season

Local Origin

We are continually striving to look for raw materials in their best growing areas, giving priority to local fruits. We are  located in a privileged agricultural basin rich of fruits and vegetable crops.

Regarding the tropical range, Patrick is often visiting suppliers abroad to select with them the best  fruits that will be part of our recipes.

Seasonal Harvest :

The fruits are processed during the period of their natural ripeness at our production and bottling site. Our priority is to work with fruits harvested at the right season in order to conserve their organoleptic properties.

Variety:       

We are seeking varieties that will allow us to extract the best of the fruits. Thanks to reliable partnerships, growers know our requirements in terms of ripeness, colouration and organoleptic qualities. We also participate in the preservation of specific varieties such as the vineyard peach, by planting new trees at our partners farms.

Partners


Following a quality approach, we have developed a strong and trustful relationship with our growers. This help us to work closely with our partners to ensure the products traceability.

Through materials investment at our partners farms,  we have built long-term relationships.

Handcrafted Production


Our workshop is equipped with traditional facilities: we use a belt press to extract pure juices whereas pulpy fruits are centrifuged.

The cold extraction preserves the organoleptic properties of fruits and vegetables despite a lower yield. We ensure pasteurisation of our products to ensure best conservation and allow you to enjoy the flexibility of a three-year best-by date.

We respect natural characteristics of the fruits while creating our recipes. We attach importance to keep the natural balance between sugar and acidity. Texture is also a fundamental part of our recipes and we work every day to make it as pleasant as possible.
