Traiteur de paris
Made by Chefs for Chefs,
Traiteur de Paris’ signature is our basic philosophy:

Traiteur de paris, the french “art de vivre”
Launched 20 years ago, we produce delicacies (canapés, petits fours), individual desserts, part-cooked vegetables and other top quality culinary aids for the catering industry. Every day, more than 400 employees – cooks, pastry Chefs and culinary experts – prepare dishes in our production sites in Brittany and Normandy, using the most traditional methods. Thanks to the help of freezing methods, which remain the best way to guarantee the quality of our products, we export this typically French know-how throughout the world.
Combining tradition and modern methods, Traiteur de Paris supplies an exhaustive variety of desserts, widely acknowledged as perfectly designed : Fondant with chocolate of Valrhona®, Opera, Cheesecake, Chocolate and Lemon curd tartlets, petits fours, etc. You will just have to make your selection.
Traiteur de Paris was the result of an encounter, that of Yann Le Moal, a passionate pastry Chef, and Denis Pinault, a young entrepreneur.
PASSION, PROFESSIONAL KNOWLEDGE AND CUSTOMER FOCUS
In 1996, they started building a small catering business, a few minutes away from Paris. The commercial acumen of one added to the creativity of the other meant it took no time for them to push out the walls. The small business grew, benefiting from an increasing image in the capital. Gorgeous cocktail parties, weddings, seminars…, requests for its services simply pour in, with a strong focus on seasonality – which makes the partners increasingly arduous. In order to cope with these constraints, they decide to prepare some of their creations in advance, and to freeze them to safeguard the excellence and quality level of their produces.
Throughout the years, and thanks to perfectly mastering the freezing process, the small business expands. Its produces are now marketed worldwide through trustworthy partners in order to meet the requirements of food professionals in order to meet the expectations of professional caterers. Creativity and quality remain at the core of our priorities.
Today, Traiteur de Paris is an ongoing family business, employing over 400 staff in its La Guerche de Bretagne and Fécamp outlets, and to display its commitment to the profession and put together passionate teams.
