EPV label companies know how to reconcile tradition and innovation, know-how and creation, work and passion, heritage and future, local and international. It is a guarantee of quality for consumers, customers and prescribers who are looking for a professional recognized for his respect of the trade and his ability to be exceptional.

A label that supports "made in France"

Living Heritage Companies maintain their production activity in France, in sectors with high added value. Most of them are present on international markets and export emblematic French know-how. They are representative of the spirit and know-how "made in France" and forge the French economic and cultural identity.

By calling on the know-how of a certified company, customers and prescribers support the maintenance and development of these prestigious activities in France, in order to secure and consolidate permanent jobs that are not relocated.
