Most of our duck products are from the brands Couthouis, Nature & Respect and Mieral.
Maison Couthouis is based in Soullans, between Challans and the coast of the Vendée. In addition to breeding in-house, they work together with local duck farmers, 70% of whom are located within a radius of less than 2 hours. Maison Couthouis’ main speciality is the dry-plucking method. This traditional skill preserves the quality of the meat and skin, and allows for a longer shelf life of the product.
Besides Couthouis duck, we also carry duck by Nature & Respect. Nature & Respect’s core values are respect for animals, farmers and nature. The ducks have a natural habitat and are given time to develop in the best possible way. The stress-free habitat ensures a delicious piece of meat.
And finally, we offer the brand Mieral. The character of this brand is defined by its partnerships with farmers, monitored breeding, free-range practices, 100% natural animal feed and respect for the land. The duck is available under: Excellence Mieral.
