Our Story

A fast-growing family-owned company

Val’Prim is a family run company founded on the entrepreneurial drive and spirit of Fernand Manceau and his wife Christiane Manceau in 1977. From its origins as a small-time market trader from the Saumuroise region, Val’Prim has seen continued growth over the years, specialising in the support of onion growers and the packaging of condiments.

Val’Prim now owns two production facilities. In 2015, the Brion facility – the company’s headquarters for over 30 years – was refurbished and transformed into a condiment receiving and preparation unit (drying, sizing, cleaning and decapping). A new facility was also constructed in Longué-Jumelles in the same year. It acts both as the company’s administrative headquarters and a facility for packaging and shipping finished products.

A new building, a new identity, a new brand, a new market offering and a brand new USP: Premium products. A USP that supports our values. Our daily commitment to provide quality products. Our desire to add character to your cooking through our products. Our aim is to promote staple products by encouraging genuine consumer choice. But alongside all these new initiatives we have one main goal: to reaffirm Val’Prim’s roots as a daring and innovative company.
