Inspired by a current of thought questioning the mode of consumption, the distribution circuits and the agri-food choices of our modern societies, it quickly seemed necessary to me to go in search of happier alternatives.
This research led me in 1992 to create a company whose development would be linked to that of a more harmonious world and to imagine a mode of operation adapted to this evolution. This idea guided my choices as an entrepreneur.
The economic reality has sometimes been vexing over the past 20 years but, basically, it seems to me today to validate my initial idea. A fertile idea that is happily shared by a growing number of people.
This biodiversity of present activities (import, packaging, sale, catering, culinary creations, etc.) and to come (opening of other places in Paris, of a house in Peru, organization of stays with our producer partners, etc.) participates in the permanent evolution of a philosophical and political economic adventure. The story continues!

From the meeting between personalities as different as complementary, emerged a very singular commercial activity.
The first challenge has been to create a virtuous food business for man and his environment in a viable economic venture.
From the beginning, we understood the importance of mastering the sector as a whole: sourcing, importing, storage and packaging.
The dynamic is growing, we decided, in December 2007, to marry our superfoods to a seasonal vegetable cuisine, organic and gluten free. The restaurant shop of the rue des Vinaigriers in Paris was born. In a very short time, our restaurant has become the benchmark for vegetarian cuisine with superfoods.
The team has gradually grown and, through the meetings with the producers, we have been able to establish more our import channels and select the best products that are the particularity of our range.
In 2010, first in Montreuil and then in 2018, in Angoulême, we developed our own laBIOratory to improve the quality and control of our products. From supplies to imports, packaging and logistics everything is managed by us.
The identity of Sol Semilla has been sketched to become clearer and assertive. Today it is thanks to a solidarity team that our company can carry out all of its activities.
Among the key people in this great team are each of our clients, who by choosing our brand make Sol Semilla what it is.
We are animated by beautiful projects of development thought with our friend Charles Bradier whose light continues to accompany us!
Welcome to our house.
