As an independent company with 100 years of experience, Loyez Woessen guarantees its customers taste, quality and food safety thanks to its know-how, recognised both in France and abroad, in terms of butter itself and its distribution. Ideally located in the heart of the European dairy basins, Loyez Woessen enjoys easy access to raw materials, its logistic platform being an ideal starting point for distribution in France, Europe and for export. Reliability, responsiveness and flexibility guide the organisation of our human-sized company. Beyond the quality of taste, Loyez Woessen, through its connection to the dairy industry, guarantees and makes your supplies of packaged butter reliable. Our main indicator remains customer satisfaction.
As an internationally oriented player, committed at the local level to meet consumer trends and the growing demand for local products, Loyez Woessen has adapted its Le Villageois and La Charrette brands. These butters originate 100% in the Hauts de France, where they are made from milk from local cooperatives close to our butter factory. Available in traditional formats of 125g, 200g, 8 Oz, 250g, 500g and traditional shapes (rolls and « farmhouse shapes »), our range has been extended with our 2022 innovation, the cardboard butter jar from 150 to 250g, 100% recyclable !
France is world renowned for its cuisine, and butter holds an important place as an ingredient in this gastronomy. In this context, Loyez Woessen has developed a line of export butters to spread our expertise and traditions beyond our borders.
At Loyez Woessen, in order to satisfy and retain existing customers (both distributors and consumers), win new ones, and serve them all well, our quality management system is at the heart of our company strategy. And as quality is at the heart of everyone’s concerns, we rigorously control it at LOYEZ WOESSEN, from one end of the production chain to the other. As a further guarantee of production quality and food safety, our company is IFS Food Highest Level certified. And because the quality of our products depend above all on the quality of our raw materials, LOYEZ WOESSEN pays close attention to material origins and relies on a known supply chain. The Organic Agriculture certification (ECOCERT), which we obtained in 2018 is part of our sustainable development approach. LOYEZ WOESSEN is also Qlip certified for « grass fed » butter, with milk cows pasturing till 250 days a year.
