Who are we ?
Markal, a cereal supplier and organic pioneer
Based in Drôme, the first organic department in France, MARKAL perpetuates a traditional and family know-how transmitted by our founder George Markarian. Our absolute commitment to organic products began in 1936 with the production of the first and only organic bulgur in France. Today, we have a panel of more than 800 organic references, mainly composed of cereals and their derivatives, which have allowed us to adapt and answer to new market demands.
As a pioneer in organic agriculture, we contributed to the creation and development of the current ECOCERT specifications in 1991. As a pioneer, we have always favored quality over quantity, which has allowed MARKAL to become a reference in the organic market and ensures us an international presence, through our resellers, in more than 40 countries.
MODERN TECHNIQUES SERVING THE ENVIRONMENT
Our commitment to limit our impact on the environment is a logical continuation of our daily struggle. Thanks to new innovations and technologies, this is possible. For example, we have recently developed a 100% biodegradable packaging for our 3-minute pasta, which does not alter its nutritional benefits.
