Traiteur de paris: the art of french living

Founded 20 years ago, our group crafts small bites (canapés, petits fours), individual-sized desserts, cooked vegetables and other high-quality cuisine shortcuts made for professionals in the food and beverage industry. There are more than 350 employees – chefs, bakers, and food preppers – who produce dishes in our ateliers in Bretagne and Normandy that are inspired by artisanal methods. By the grace of deep freezing technology – the most sure and natural way to preserve the excellence of our products – we are able to export our French « know-how » across the world.

With respect to tradition but looking towards modernity, Traiteur de Paris, as a supplier of pastries, is renowned for the excellence of our dishes: Fondant withTaïnori® chocolate of Valrhona®, Opéra, Cheesecake, Tiramisu, petits fours, etc. You will definitely find something for every taste!

Our history

Traiteur de Paris was born from one meeting: between that of Yann Le Moal, a passionate Pastry Chef, and Denis Pinault, a young entrepreneur.

Passion, craftsmanship, and client understanding

In 1996, Yann and Denis launched the construction of a small test kitchen just outside of Paris. Very quickly, the sales acumen of one and the creative talent of the other broke the barriers of their business. Their small company developed a glowing reputation in the capital city. Prestigious cocktail receptions, marriages, seminars – these converging demands (often at the same time) proved demanding for this small group of two collaborators. In order to rectify the demands of their organization, they decided to prepare some of their creations in advance and to freeze them to preserve the level of excellence and the quality of their products.

Year by year and through their mastery of the art of deep freezing, the small artisanal company grew. Its products from then on were distributed through trusted partnerships to all four corners of the world, to respond to the expectations of food and beverage clients. At all times, however, creativity and quality remained always at the heart of their operation.

Today, Traiteur de Paris is a family business, proud to employ more than 350 people in its ateliers in La Guerche de Bretagne and Fécamp, to transmit our love of the craft, and to create passionate teams.

Freezing to our advantage for the excellence of our products

Freezing is the most natural way to preserve the excellence of our products. It permits us to conserve their optimal nutritional qualities, flavors, and textures.

Because of this technique, the duration of conservation of our products is quite long, therefore limiting the risk of waste. Consideration of the seasonality of products is also an added benefit of freezing.

A commitment to essential and lasting quality

So as to be in perfect sync with the demands of our clients, Traiteur de Paris claims a Premium position that is more and more affirmed as time goes on.

The selection of premium ingredients is a priority for Chef Yann Le Moal and his team.
Our ingredients are selected with utmost care:

  • Potatoes from Le Gouessant, grown in Brittany
  • Apples from French orchards
  • Products from across France (cream, flour, cookies…)

The quality of our packaging and the logistical mastership of Traiteur de Paris allows us to ship to professionals products that are perfect, practical, and personalized.

Through this demand and rigorous standards, we are able to transmit our passion for French cooking and pastry-making - that heritage without compare.
