Les Mousquetaires Group is a key player within the French retail industry. It ranks as the third largest among the food retailers in France.
Earthworm Foundation has been working with Les Mouquetaires for 7 years on different commodities. We first started to work on the tropical wood supply chain and then include forest impacting commodities such as palm oil, charcoal or cocoa.
More recently, our works with Les Mousquetaires has included sea products with a special focus on tuna and shrimps.
Building transparency and engaging on the ground has been the main program that we have developed with Les Mousquetaires.
Les Mousquetaires is going beyond certification by expanding its palm oil policy to safeguard High Carbon Stock and High Conservation Value forest, as well as peatlands. With wood it works to ensure it buys from known, legal and responsible sources; while in charcoal it is selecting suppliers who produce responsibly.
