Our Go Clean approach

Delicious in every way.
At Délifrance we exist to bake everyday delicious – bringing joy to our customers every day.
We believe the beauty in our delicious food doesn’t just come from how it tastes and how it looks but also from the way it is made. From the responsible sourcing of our ingredients to the care we put in crafting our recipes, we want our products to be simply enjoyed without question.
It was this desire to consistently look for a ”better way” that inspired our ”Go Clean” journey.
”Go Clean” is our commitment to every one of our customers to deliver:
Simpler recipes

Simple ingredients, everyone can understand taking into account state of the art science developments, regulation and ever evolving consumers’ needs.

OUR COMMITMENTS

Which products can be considered “clean” or “cleaner”?

As part of our Go Clean approach, we analyzed all the product references in our catalogue in order to qualify them. You will therefore find products that we call CLEAN or CLEANER.
clean

CLEAN because they contain zero additives or green additives only in the list of ingredients, no artificial colour or flavour, no palm oil not certified in the recipe, no hydrogenated fat and no eggs from caged hens.

cleaner

CLEANER because their recipe has been improved as much as possible. These products may contain one or more orange additives but no red additives in the list of ingredients, no artificial colour or flavour, no palm oil not certified in the recipe, no hydrogenated fat and no eggs from caged hens.

Concrete proofs with our products

 

 

"I’m convinced that our health depends on the food we eat

We are gradually removing controversial ingredients from our recipes, sometimes at the request of customers, and sometimes at our own initiative."

Whilst our Go Clean journey will help our customers make better choices every day this can’t be at the expense of great taste and quality and this is a challenge our bakers and chefs are proud to rise to every day.
