Origin France Garantie: We explain everything to you!
There is a multitude of labels, mentions around French production and products made in France.
As promised, we will enlighten you on a few concepts and on who is what, how and why.
Today we are talking to you about the Origine France Garantie certification.
What is that ?
Origine France Garantie is a certification that provides consumers with the traceability of a product by giving a clear and objective indication of origin.
Who says certification, says certification body. If you wish to obtain this certification, you must submit a request to the organization Origine France Garantie.
The Origine France Garantie label wishes to meet two important objectives for the consumer and also for the sellers:
First of all, it allows consumers to have clear information on the origin of a product. For this, the manufactured product must meet two criteria:
- the place where the product takes on its essential characteristics is located in France. To help you understand when the product goes from a raw material state, for example fabrics, to its finished appearance, a t-shirt.
- At least 50% of the unit cost price is acquired in France - The cost price is the manufacturing price of a product without the manufacturer's margin.
Then this label also allows French companies to promote their products and their production.
And how to obtain the label?
As mentioned above, the Origine France Garantie label is issued under certification. For companies wishing to obtain the label, the specifications presented on the Origine France Garantie label site or on the Pro France Association site must be respected. These specifications go into detail on the procedures to be followed in order to acquire the Origine France Garantie label.
Beyond the theoretical aspect of the Origine France Garantie label, this above all allows consumers to have at a glance a clear idea of the origin of the product, the commitment of the company in its production. . Basically, this label certifies in complete confidence that I am buying a product that is French and that contributes to the development of French companies, and therefore related economic issues such as employment.
It is also a question of encouraging entrepreneurial initiatives and supporting French companies wishing to commit their production, and be completely transparent with consumers on the manufacture of their products.
Let's not forget that buying French is a real initiative and a real action. We become an actor of our consumption = A consum'actor!
