A five-generation legacy of enduring passion.
In 1885, when Gabriel and Philomène LAUTIER, our great-great-grandparents, created Maison Gabriel LAUTIER in Pouzols, Hérault, their motto was "Serving Agriculture". They were forerunners of the circular economy, making "BOURRU" fertilizers from wool and leather waste from the Mazamet wool scouring. François and Augustine LAUTIER continued to structure this wonderful adventure.
When our grandparents, Marcel and Isabelle LAUTIER, settled permanently in Mazamet, they decided, following discussions with researchers, to incorporate grape pulp into the bourru, as the animal stimulates and the plant nourishes the soil... They then developed a range of products to create amendments, organo-minerals, to make "Les Engrais des Belles Récoltes".
Our parents, Domi and Jacques LAUTIER-BARTHÈS, who I'm sure you're familiar with, have made a huge leap forward with many changes: from hand-sewn bags, we've moved on to an automated bagging system, from powder to granulation, from pallets to big-bags, then to hoppers and spreader rentals, with a strong focus on research and development.
Our father, with his deep roots in viticulture, sought to create fertilizers specifically formulated to address the unique challenges of crop cultivation. His main focus was to put soil analysis back at the heart of discussions, to create "The right product, in the right place, at the right dose".

Birth of MAZOR® : Following the end of wool scouring and the mad cow crisis, our family stopped all animal composting. They created MAZOR®, a 7-month composted organic plant amendment, which became the basis for all their products. In keeping with their circular economy approach, they sought out noble raw materials close to Mazamet, to guarantee the creation of MAZOR®. That's how "Soil dietetics" came to be their watchword in creating the right products.

Over the years, we have developed innovative products and perfected our processes to guarantee exceptional fertilizers.
Following the end of wool scouring and the mad cow crisis, we stopped using animal compost. We then created MAZOR®, a 7-month composted organic plant amendment, which became the basis for all our products.
Toujours dans une démarche d’économie circulaire, Nous avons recherché des matières premières nobles non loin de Mazamet, afin de garantir la création du Mazor®.
And so 'Soil Dietetics' became our guiding principle in creating the right products. The observation today is simple: in 100 years, we have degraded the soils more than in 1,000 years. We have pushed crops and forgotten the essential: to have 'Living Soils'.
Today, we are very pleased to carry on this legacy, with great humility and pride for all the work done over the past 140 years by our ancestors, because it is above all a passion: that of our LAUTIER-BARTHÈS Family.
Like our forebears, we form a tandem:
- Marie in national and international trade and purchasing,
- Olivier in research, regulations, production and management.
As you can see, this beautiful transition has been going on for some time, and like organic nitrogen, the evolution is growing steadily.
We are currently working on a number of exciting development projects in order to "Cultivate crops and love that never stops", to ensure your long-term future and continue what we have been taught : to remain close to the farming world, humble and attentive to your needs, so that we can provide you with the best possible service from "Exceptional Fertilizers".
At Germiflor, we are proud to be able to count on the support and commitment of our customers.

"We could simply mention product quality, MAZOR® like a diamond in the rough, noble inputs, product ethics, transparency... and the list goes on. In addition to quality products, GERMIFLOR establishments are also men and women who share the same values as we do: "at the service of the land and the people who work it". These words, dear to Alain TRUCHON, echo and resonate with the decade-long collaboration between TRUCHON DIFFUSION and GERMIFLOR establishments. Available and attentive, they all contribute to meeting the needs of our customers in the Champagne region. The answer to the question raised by the GERMIFLOR establishments is synergy, working together towards a common goal."

"The ISIDORE Group identifies its suppliers on the basis of established criteria: control of supplies in terms of both quality and quantity, and manufacturing quality. We also consider the ability to innovate as an element of sustainability in our relationships. Finally, the added value created by the product for our customers is a fundamental factor in its inclusion in our portfolio. Over the long term, we aim to build a partnership that translates into exclusive marketing delegation. In this way, GERMIFLOR and the ISIDORE Group have built up a solid, long-term relationship over several decades, in the interests of winegrowers."
"Our partnership with GERMIFLOR is a long-standing and intense one: their products are well known to our winegrower members, most of whom have made them the mainstay of their vineyard nutrition, with recognized effects not only on agronomic results, but also on the organoleptic characteristics of the resulting wines."
