LAFONT highlights excellence with a feminine touch

The Lafont family is expanding. Since it was founded in 1844, the brand has always encouraged excellence and the value of work, across all professional fields. As the exclusive official partner of the Michelin Guide, the company gained fame for its jacket with the blue, white and red collar which distinguishes 'les Meilleurs Ouvriers de France' [The best craftsmen in France]. Lafont dresses some of the most outstanding professional talents and has made equal opportunities a major focus of its commitment. As women are increasingly prominent in the world of Haute Cuisine, demonstrating their return to traditional careers, Lafont has chosen Nina Métayer as its ambassador. She is the first woman to be named the "World's Best Pastry Chef 2023" by the International Union of Bakers and Pastry Chefs. Each day, this young chef channels all her energy, conviction and talent into creating her recipes, and at the same time shares her culinary knowledge via her YouTube channel and her 353,000 followers on Instagram, providing inspiring sweet creations each week…

    "Nowadays, all businesses, whether large, medium or small, are having to make changes to their activities in order to serve the public interest, which is ultimately in their own interest. The Global Compact France ambassador companies distinguish themselves by their ability to understand the environmental and social issues of our time, and to transform them into economic opportunities. They are also the spearheads of the Global Compact France in their territories, and contribute to building a more sustainable world."

    "Since CSR has been an integral part of purchasing policies, relations between big groups and SMBs have begun to change from customer-supplier relationships into partnerships that allow for co-innovation with a positive environmental, social, and economic impact for the field. Let's raise the bar!"

    “Large companies may outsource up to 80% of their business to other companies, particularly SMEs. For years, their relationships with suppliers were built largely on mistrust and a ‘zero sum’ mentality, driven solely by purchase prices. Nowadays, the role of CSR in influencing larger companies’ procurement decisions has gradually instilled trust in its relationships with SMEs, and not before time!”
