The “Origine France Garantie” Label

28 Jun.

Unlike many manufacturers who opt for offshoring strategies, PANEM relies on the local skills of its employees and its partners. Since 2014, the “Origine France Garantie” Label certifies that PANEM products are processed and manufactured in France. And that up to 92% of materials and labour are French. Beyond this guarantee, the “Origine France Garantie” label is synonymous of permanent quality and respect for of the environment. It is a vehicle for promoting our skills on the international stage.

The aim of this label is to provide consumers with clear information on the origin of a product, and to enable companies to enhance the value of their production, while promoting a short supply chain with low environmental impact. It was created in 2010 by the Pro France association, which aims to promote French production and enhance the value of companies that manufacture in France.

To obtain this label, the product must meet two criteria:

– The place where the product acquires its essential characteristics is in France.
– At least 50% of the unit cost price is acquired in France.

Then, inspectionsare carried out every year in order to ensure that 100% of the product is made in France, and at least 50% of the manufacturing costs are of French origin.

The “Origine France Garantie” label is awarded after rigorous verification of product traceability and compliance with French and European standards. It is used for a wide variety of products.

Renewal of this Label is subject to annual audits by AFNOR.
