As part of its Organic-Report series, Bio Linéaires sets out to meet the committed brands behind organic food.
Founded in 1879, Maison Meneau is renowned for the quality of its authentic products. “Our aim is to help protect mankind and the planet by offering organic beverages for everyone, produced in our French family-run, traditional and ethical factory, and to offer a moment of relaxation based on the pleasure of taste. Such is its raison d’être. Offering a colourful and committed organic drinks range is here to stay. From its syrups and organic fair-trade green tea infusions to its pure juices from the south-west region, Fizz lemonades and Lalune local beers, all its products share a common objective: to embody a commitment to sustainability.
Organic syrups: historic, ecological recipes for an economical drink
Syrup is not only a convivial, economical drink based on traditional French know-how, it’s also environmentally friendly! Maison Meneau syrups are made for each generation, and the ethical company keeps its finger on the pulse of new trends and consumer demands: in terms of flavours, the origins of raw materials and manufacturing processes. The flavours are generational, with aniseed and orange becoming less prominent on the shelves in favour of ginger syrups and fair-trade organic hibiscus infusions from Burkina Faso. 37 organic Fair Trade syrups, classic flavours or unusual aromas, one sip and you’ll be travelling light, with complete peace of mind, for the pleasure of your senses.

Two brands, each with a different approach, under the umbrella of a single not-for-profit foundation.
Yogi Tea, the 100% organic Ayurvedic range, has been the company’s spearhead since its inception. Choice, a more recent addition, is a range of simpler recipes, the basis for the creation of 100% organic channels. Yogi Tea has a strong reputation in its field, and is widely represented on the tea and infusion shelves of organic shops, as well as at trade fairs. The brand’s graphic approach, which consists of one colour for each recipe, allows Yogi Tea to stand out on the shelves thanks to a remarkable rainbow organisation that boosts its visibility! Both brands are owned by the Yogi Tea foundation, a not-for-profit foundation that sets Yogi Tea apart from its competitors.

Biomère, better known under the brand name Jubiles, is a young social economy company. It manufactures and markets a natural fermented drink, kombucha, creating innovative recipes to be found on the shelves of organic shops.
The promise of healthy, responsible drinks that combine pleasure and health!
Founded in 2017 by two friends, engineers by training and very involved in the quest for healthier eating, the Biomère brewery has gradually grown, and now has 9 permanent jobs as well as work-study contracts. The Jubiles brand and its founders have set themselves the mission of democratising healthy, sustainable eating by moving into the fresh drinks sector, which is often dominated by leaders in highly sugary drinks (soft drinks, fruit juices) with little nutritional value. At Jubiles, this mission involves reinterpreting an age-old drink: kombucha, which is well known and widely consumed in some countries, and which has been developing in France in recent years, especially in organic form.
