A key sector in our success
Expressing your talent with meaning in a cutting-edge industry
This is why our management style is based on the quality of human relationships and a responsible approach to our market. Everyone here knows that they play a role in a vital industry. And we know that we make a useful contribution in our daily professional lives, because what we do has a positive impact on people and their environment.
Lesaffre is an international group with locations on five continents. And yet, we remain a family business with a human approach and an authenticity of which we are proud. That characteristic straightforwardness is reflected in the organization of our entities and in the relationships we have with our local customers, partners and authorities.
Building tomorrow’s industry today
Working together to better nourish and protect the planet is a mission that makes sense at Lesaffre. This is what allows the development of microorganisms for bread, but also preserve humans, animals and plants health. Since 170 years, we have studied the markets and seen the changing expectations and needs of our customers. We have exported internationally and broken into new territories. Today, anywhere in the world where substrates, water, and energy can be found, we are there. And our expansion is ongoing; we continue to develop new technologies, new processes, and new equipment. We come up with new and innovative solutions—to optimize our supply chain, for example.
All these objectives drive us to remain at the top of our game in order to successfully rise to our customers’ current and future challenges. None of this would be possible without the human qualities of our employees, their talent, and their desire to make a difference. If you recognize yourself in this philosophy, join us.
