« Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. »

Ralph Waldo Emerson



The world has changed more in the past 20 years than it did in the previous century.

McLuhan’s “global village” is now a reality.

We measure time in milliseconds. We react to everything, immediately, constantly.

Marshall McLuhan

Visions of collective utopia have given way to Warhol’s 15 minutes of fame.

New attitudes and new practices are emerging.

A new world is dawning, filled with uncertainty yet packed with opportunity.

November 2021

First, a meeting with a baker-pastry chef trained at the Ferrandi school, passed through the Ritz and Dalloyau, before becoming a… naval non-commissioned officer! Then an update on the improvers adapted to the quality of 2021 flour. Finally, a little tour of Argentina and some topical images: this is the autumn batch of “L’ Envol “, Lesaffre’s customer newspaper.

September 2021

The 180-page book dedicated to 100 years of FALA (Fabrique Alsacienne de Levure & Alcools, Lesaffre group) has just been released. A source of pride for the whole team.


August 2021

July 2021

Why call an ingredient that does not contain yeast “levure chimique” (i.e. “chemical yeast”) ? Certainly, the expression is not appropriate to designate “baking powder” used for cakes and pastries. Even less when used as a synonym for “industrial yeast”, this time targeting the culture of baker’s yeast. Between abuse of language and unjustified connotation, an update on a name that sows confusion among consumers, but also bakers.


May 2021

More than a year of an exceptional crisis : L’Envol interviewed five professionals who discuss the circumstances in which they approached this period: remote control, maintenance or reduction of working hours, products of circumstance, adaptation of product ranges or new distribution levers… and also how Lesaffre was able to support them.
