All About Taste

“Militant du gout” means ...

We staunchly support authentic, flavourful products. Militant du Goût is a signature, a brand which guarantees the origin, the quality, the seasonal nature of the product, informing and protecting the consumer. In a word, or rather 2 words: authenticity and flavor!

The approach labeled "Le Gard, Militant du Goût, came into being in 2002 under the auspices of the Gard General Council. The initiative aims to develop the Gard gastronomic heritage by facilitating awareness and promotion of excellent products. These products convey the quintessence of Gard county agriculture and the savoir-faire of our artisans and restaurants.
