Bonduelle is a family-run group established in 1853 in France. Our ambition is to be the world reference in ‘well living’ through vegetable products.

Our vegetables, grown over an area of more than 128,000 hectares, are sold in 100 countries in all forms, under all types of brands, through all distribution channels and using all available technologies: canned, frozen, pasteurized, dried, fresh/ready-to-use.

Launched in 2002, our CSR strategy is structured around five objectives to be met by 2025:

Caring, with our farmer partners, for cultivated land.

Reducing our environmental impact, from field to plate.

Encouraging as many people as possible to eat healthily and sustainably, and increasing affordability.

Ensuring the ‘well-living’ of employees and local communities.

Encouraging involvement across the board.

How can we encourage children to love veggies? The Louis Bonduelle Foundation looks for effective strategies

Though everyone now knows how beneficial vegetables are, we still fail to meet daily nutritional requirements. Like so many of the fundamental lessons we learn, good dietary habits are formed when we are children. It is therefore vital that we teach our children to love healthy foods starting from a very early age, and that includes foods like veggies that are…

This is particularly true of our professional lives. Our desire to shake things up grew considerably after around…

At Bonduelle, seasonal employment provides opportunity, not instability

Eating seasonal vegetables benefits both our own health and that of the planet. Thanks to Bonduelle, which provides in-season, field-grown vegetables that are canned and frozen, it’s now possible to eat seasonal vegetables all year round! Although once they’re placed in cans or frozen, they can be eaten at absolutely any time, the fact remains that when we think of “seasonal…

How can we highlight the importance of responsible agricultural practices to the public ? Bonduelle’s hackathon leads the way

For two years, Bonduelle and its corporate partners have been using the annual Paris International Agricultural Show as a chance to meet the public and consumers. Their objective? To spread the message of responsible agricultural practices. In December 2016, Bonduelle decided to go one step further, transforming the meeting of its “stakeholders” using an innovative concept taken from the IT world…

How Bonduelle’s close relationships with vegetable producers are helping to foster sustainable farming?

The agricultural sector is currently facing a number of threats that could, in the long term, endanger humans’ ability to supply ourselves with the food that we need. The challenge is clear—but how can the industry adapt to become amenable to more sustainable agricultural models?
