Paris, 29th March 2012 – It is with great pride that the men and women of LSDH received the eleventh annual Grand Prix de l’Entreprise Patrimoniale et Familiale (an award for owner-managed and family businesses) by ASMEP-ETI, Lombard Odier et Family Business Network (FBN) France.

The priority LSDH gives to innovation, the company’s ambitious environmental strategy and its force of resistance convinced the jury. The trophy was presented by Guy Savoy, the great French Chef during a ceremony that took place at the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Thursday 20th March 2012, 5.30 PM. It is in the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry that the Grand Prix de l’Entreprise Patrimoniale et Familiale ceremony begins, rewarding the companies that are the most efficient and most respectful of the social and environmental balance.

This year, LSDH won the Grand Prix! Our family company run by three generations that celebrated its hundredth birthday in 2011, seduced the jury of this eleventh edition of the Grand Prix thanks to four main elements:

  • Our innovative approach, that goes beyond our Research and Development department: we consider it a general attitude shared by all our employees, that leads to the creation of over 100 new products every year, thanks to the permanent monitoring of new consumer trends and the thorough work carried out in collaboration with our suppliers;
  • Our strong and ambitious environmental commitment: we choose equipment that allows us to reduce our consumption (energy, water, materials, etc…) and to limit our environmental impact. These choices have already been rewarded by many prizes;
  • Our national and international development strategy that allows us to maintain our competitiveness and that results in spectacular growth in this time of crisis;
  • Our moral values based on respect for Mankind and on responsible corporate citizenship, with the will to place our employees at the heart of our decision-making process, and to consider human resources as a strength favoring motivation.

It is a great honor for all our teams to receive this prestigious national Prize. It rewards our strategy, all the work undertaken by the men and women of LSDH over the years in order to innovate, develop, and challenge ourselves in order to perpetuate the company while respecting Mankind and the environment. This award strongly encourages us to pursue our diversification strategy, our social, societal and environmental commitments and to enforce our investments, a guarantee of sustainability: the ambitious program (40 million euros invested and 70 jobs created) planned for 2012-2015 is the tangible proof.
