Simplicity

Humility is one of the founding notions behind the simplicity that characterises the Group. It is also important for everybody to be accessible, to get to the heart of the matter. And of course, keeping things simple is a question of common sense too.

Farmers, join us!

Farmers, join us!

Our farmers are responsible people who are really passionate about their work and their animals, with whom the LDC Group has enjoyed a trusting relationship for almost 50 years.

Our farmers’ comply with the various specifications and their commitments (respect for animals and the environment, transparency, controls by third-party organisations etc.) and the Group secures their income through contractualisation (setting prices, securing supplies and sales outlets) and technical support (advice from breeding and farming specialists, training, quality audits, etc.).

In order to develop livestock farming sustainably, the Group has historically relied on approaches under official quality labels (Label Rouge, AOC – controlled designation of origin, AB – organically farmed) for free-range poultry, on the Product Compliance Certification, and since 2017 on our ethical “Nature d’Eleveurs” programme for certified poultry and everyday poultry.
