From farm to fork: back to a day of discovery at 'Les Vergers de Noslon' and the Julien Beausse exploitation with the Newrest Chefs. Located less than 100 kilometers from Paris, the farms 'Vergers of Noslon' and Beausse are essential actresses of "Jardins de Pays", the first brand of local products created for foodservice, by Transgourmet fruits & vegetables. Carefully selected by the latter, partner of Newrest, these two family farms make available their products from responsible agriculture to Newrest Chefs for the preparation of meal trays of more than fifty establishments in Ile de France.
A day with Newrest chefs to select quality products from thousands of meals
On Thursday, October 10th, teams of Newrest and Transgourmet traveled to ‘Les Vergers de Noslon’ and the Julien Beausse to meet the farmers – Marc Beausse (left) and Vincent Lorne (right) – and discover all the secrets of seasonal products offered by these two farmers, committed to responsible local agriculture and quality. Apples, pears, salad sprouts, rockets and spinach, their products make up the thousands of meals prepared by the Newrest Chefs for their guests.
From the preparation of the land to the picking of the products, through the treatment of the plots of land, the farmers have reconstituted all the stages of production under the watchful eye of Nicolas Forestier, Production Manager at the Addict restaurant in Rungis, and Nicolas Gabouleaud, Chief Executive Officer of CNAF.
“Every day, we cook hundreds of meals for our guests, for whom we select our products with great high standards. Only by working with farmers like Marc Beausse or Vincent Lorne, whose work we know perfectly, can we keep our promise of always cooking quality meals.” Nicolas Forestier, Production Manager at L’Addict’s restaurant in Rungis.
“Understanding where our products come from and how they are treated on a daily basis is the basis of our business. This visit allowed us to see with our own eyes the work of these operators, whose products make up and will compose the future meals of many restaurants of companies, schools and medical-social centers of Île-de-France “, Nicolas Gabouleaud, Chief Executive Officer of CNAF.
