Founded more than three years ago, Label d’Oc is a conserve manufacturer for local producers in the Occitanie region. By combining its know-how with that of regional producers, it can make use of production surpluses, and highlight their produce. Since 2017, Label d’Oc has also offered an inventive range entitled 7/e (in French “c’est eux” meaning “it’s them” – the producers) which associates advocacy with the taste benefits of home-made cooking. This range is guaranteed additive-free, and is made from raw materials exclusively produced in Occitanie.
La Brasserie Larché has been brewing bottle-refermented craft beers with honey from the Yonne region for more than 20 years.
