Made in France VS Origine France Garantie
Made in France is neither a label nor an appellation, it is a simple marking of the origin of the product and it is governed by the Customs Code.
- Products whose last substantial transformation, ie resulting in the creation of a new product, was carried out in France
- Products of which 45% of added value was realized in France. This is controlled by the Customs Department. Indeed, the origin marking is done on a case-by-case basis for each category of products.
Origine France Garantie is a label, financed by private funds and awarded by Bureau Veritas.
- The obligation for the product to "take its essential characteristics in France", which means that production or manufacture must be carried out in France
- The obligation that at least 50% of the unit cost price of the product is acquired in France
To remember …
The label “Origine France Garantie” is therefore more demanding than “Made in France” and has a dual objective: to offer more traceability to consumers and to enhance the brands that have maintained or relocated their production in France.
