Welcome to our new sponsor - Ponthier Puree!

We’re really grateful to Ponthier in choosing to join the APC as a corporate sponsor. André Ponthier founded the company that bears his name over 60 years ago in the green heart of the Limousin. His love of fruit was born in the family orchards and has never faded. From father to son, the company has taken on new dimensions and new, more sophisticated, innovative products have been created, but always with Maison Ponthier’s concern for quality and tradition.

The fruit is carefully selected from accredited growers, while the traditional recipes are based on recognized know-how. This, along with the personal commitment of Yves Ponthier and his team during tasting tests, is what awakens the sense and makes the difference. Today, the Ponthier range is popular with all chefs worldwide who are concerned about authenticity and champion traditional regional food.
