The company : Astier Demarest


Astier-Demarest
The creation of the ASTIER DEMAREST company, established in Grasse in 1880, is firstly linked to the history of the perfume industry. Specialised in the distribution of natural and synthetic aromatic source materials, we import them from their countries of origin, for the sectors of perfumery, cosmetics, aromatherapy, and food flavouring.

We have in 2015 widened our activity with the creation of a Fruit Department, dedicated to processed fruit trade: juices, purees and natural flavourings. Our Paris office is managing customer service.

ETHICS
Our network of suppliers covers the continents and relies upon historic partnerships. We work transparently with the companies we represent to assure traceability throughout the supply chain, to master product quality, and to maintain price competitiveness.

We are conscious that our practices must preserve biodiversity and the environment as well as respect human beings, and we privilege responsible modes of production and fair-trade projects.
To integrate this commitment with our practices we have initiated a program of social responsibility in the heart of our business. The regimen to which we adhere is common to a group of companies associated as Arômes et Parfums de la région grassoise.

BACKGROUND
Long experience has enabled us to acquire a profound knowledge of source materials and markets, as well as expertise in the area of product transformation.

Our role as a partner makes our company an essential link in the chain : a relay between our customers and the suppliers, we contribute to the establishment of qualities and to the evaluation of quantities for production; we assure on-site controls during production and the eventual adjustment of manufacturing procedures to achieve the best standardisation of the products.

QUALITY CONTROL
Each natural source material that we purchase is checked at reception and compared to the supplier’s evaluation sample.
An internal laboratory with chromatographic equipment, a device to measure density, index of refraction, rotary power, etc, as well as a pilot for distillation trials and extraction of absolute from concrete are at the ready.
Other analyses (pesticides, allergens, heavy metals) are done by an external analytical laboratory.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Attentive to the market and its trends, we are there to help with your creations. Research into new source materials and new products (fractionated distillation, colourless, hypo-allergenic, natural extracts…) is another domain of discovery in which we are passionately interested.

REGULATION
An integrated service keeps track of the applicability of regulatory provisions, assures the updating of technical documents, and provides assistance to our partners, the growers.

LOGISTICS
We have a customs-certified storehouse with over 1,500 sq. metres of space and 300 tonnes of capacity, enabling contract stocking and delivery on demand.
Our logistics service, in collaboration with the major transporters, guarantees rapid delivery of small quantities or large volumes of product.
Certified as an Authorised Economic Operator since January 2012, this status offers our company an easier access to many simplifications provided for in the customs rules, and expedites our international exchanges with suppliers and customers.
