Since 2000, Biodéal has been manufacturing and marketing a wide variety of organic products from cow's, sheep's and goat's milk. A range under the sign of diversity and quality, which offers: traditional cheeses, several of which are labeled PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) or PGI (Protected Geographical Indication), fresh products; gourmet and unctuous brewed yogurts, plain or with fruit, fresh cheeses and UHT milk and butter.
All products are made with organic French cow, sheep or goat milk from farms located closer to the processing sites. The quality of the milk, that of the other natural ingredients, and the respect of an artisanal know-how are the essential components of the Biodéal products.
The products are marketed mainly in specialized organic stores where BIODEAL is the supplier with the widest range of organic cheese and dairy products. BIODEAL is also present in the organic departments of large and medium-sized retailers and in some cheese-makers, in France and abroad.

Organic dairy products and solidarity, this is the motto of Biodéal.
Since its inception, Biodéal has been committed to organic milk producers in a fair way, through multi-year contracts that provide them with a fair price for milk, based on production costs.
Biodéal thus contributes to the sustainability of farms and promotes conversion to organic farming. It is one of the pioneers of North-North solidarity trade, which is gradually being structured in France.

Depuis 2000, Biodéal fabrique et commercialise une grande variété de produits biologiques à partir de lait de vache, brebis et chèvre. Une gamme placée sous le signe de la diversité et de la qualité, qui propose : des fromages traditionnels, dont plusieurs sont labellisés AOP (Appellation d’Origine Protégée) ou IGP (Indication Géographique Protégée), des produits frais ; yaourts brassés gourmands et onctueux, nature ou aux fruits, fromages frais et du lait UHT et du beurre.
Tous les produits sont fabriqués avec du lait bio français, de vache, de brebis ou de chèvre, provenant d’élevages situés au plus près des sites de transformation. La qualité du lait, celle des autres ingrédients naturels, et le respect d’un savoir-faire artisanal sont les composantes essentielles des produits Biodéal.
Les produits sont commercialisés principalement dans les magasins spécialisés bio où BIODEAL est le fournisseur avec la plus large gamme de fromages et produits laitiers bio. BIODEAL est également présent dans les rayons bio de grandes et moyennes surfaces et chez certains crémiers-fromagers, en France et à l’export.
Des produits laitiers bio et solidaires, telle est la devise de Biodéal.
Depuis ses débuts, Biodéal s’engage auprès des producteurs de lait bio dans une démarche équitable, au travers de contrats pluriannuels qui leur assurent une juste rémunération du prix du lait, sur la base des coûts de production.
Biodéal contribue ainsi à pérenniser les exploitations agricoles et favorise la conversion vers l’agriculture biologique. Il fait partie des pionniers du commerce solidaire nord-nord qui se structure progressivement en France.
