Access to top quality French food and drink products has now been made easier than ever, following the launch of new online gourmet marketplace ‘Gourming’, with 5,000 items already listed on the site that was launched in Paris on 18th January.
Gourming is aimed at the restaurant, hospitality, catering and food distribution industries and is a trade-only web portal, with around 250 French producers on board already. It has been created and developed by Le Duff Group, which is a leading business in the Café Bakery sector with a presence in 90 countries across five different continents.
“Gourming provides a simple way to connect French producers with chefs, restauranteurs and other members of the food and catering industry around the globe,” commented Louis le Duff, the Founder and President of the Le Duff Group. “Over three quarters of France’s small and medium sized food businesses barely export at present, if at all, so Gourming provides a way of unlocking their potential in order to provide exceptional produce for catering and food industry professionals worldwide. As such, we see Gourming as the community of good food and French gastronomic culture.”
Each of the producers that are currently listed with Gourming have completed a rigorous selection process which ensured that the services and products that were being offered were of the highest quality, and the aim is to double the figure of producers that are on board with Gourming by the end of the year.
Gourming is now live and is available in 26 different countries including here in the UK, and there even plans to extend its reach to North America and Asia in the near future. This one stop solution really does meet trade customer’s needs all over the world, and it is likely to go on to bigger and better things.
