“Made in France”

Choosing PROOPLE means choosing “made in France” know-how. Our factories in France have production lines designed in-house to

The words “Made in France”, words that we are proud to use on our products and solutions to attest to the French origin of our manufacturing.

With our “Made in France” marking, we certify that the entire manufacturing / transformation of the product was carried out in France in our factory in Chalonnes / Loire (49).

Only a few raw materials are imported from Western Europe (mainly from Germany as there is no production in France). Thus, we respect the official definition which specifies that “products whose non-preferential origin is French within the meaning of the European Union Customs Code, i.e. with a last substantial transformation carried out in France, are considered to be manufactured in France”.
