Melvita is based in a beautiful ecological location deep in the countryside of southern France, near Lagorce in the Ardèche Gorges. Originally a bee farm the site has been carefully managed as Melvita has grown preserving every aspect of the environment.
The eco-factory site now covers over 2 hectares and provides a sustainable work place for over 250 local people. In 2009, an ambitious eco-construction project will double its size and capacity. Our eco-factory houses all of our production teams and head office staff.
The new Melvita eco-factory has everything from solar-voltaic panels to provide sustainable energy for power and water heating, to a living ‘green' roof helping the site blend into the natural landscape: proof that, even on an industrial scale, we can still work together to look after the planet.
