The Excellence of French Know-How
The Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company, or EPV) label is a mark of recognition of the French State, put in place to reward French firms for the excellence of their traditional and industrial skills.
It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Mr. Jacques Mouclier on 21 June 2015. Member of the Entreprises du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Companies) National Committee since its inception in 2006, Mr. Mouclier has always endeavoured to defend the excellence of French craftsmanship with rigour and passion.
The Savonnerie Marseillaise de la Licorne is hosting a selection of the products of 18 of the region's Living Heritage Companies until 31 July 2015. Coordinated by DIRECCTE Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, the exhibition aims to highlight the expertise of these unique local businesses: figurines, ceramics, spirits, soap, olive oil, furniture and food products are all sectors that demonstrate excellence in business in the region.
