“B Bois” line:
A symbol of DE BUYER’s commitment to CSR
The new “B Bois” line is first and foremost the result of an exchange between metal specialists De Buyer and wood specialists Marlux (which was bought by the Vosges De Buyer company in 2016). Driven by the desire to make safe and long-lasting utensils, De Buyer brings together the finest materials to create these products:
- Beech wood: This strong, solid and durable material leaves a positive ecological footprint and provides natural smoothness. It meets the expectations of a society which is increasingly aware of the need to protect its environment.
- Beeswax: This provides materials with natural protection against contact and oxidation.
The integration of wood into the production process has led De Buyer to develop and master new manufacturing expertise.
DEMONSTRATING CSR COMMITMENT
In April 2018, De Buyer became the only player in the culinary sector to be confirmed as being committed to CSR upon its very first evaluation. De Buyer has distinguished itself in particular through its many activities supporting the environment. The “B Bois” collection is a new symbol and sign of this commitment attested by:
- PEFC certification for the beech wood used, which comes from sustainably managed Vosges forests
- A natural beeswax finish. This little insect is the subject of special protection from the company, which has just installed four hives on land near the factory and at the edge of the Val d’Ajol forest. Managed by a local beekeeper and forest warden for the Natural Forests Office, the goal of the apiary is to provide a natural area for local wildlife. Commonly found in the Natural Park where the site is located, bees are essential pollinators for the reproduction of more than 80% of plant species. The first honey harvest will happen after the “Maison & Objet” show.
The “B Bois” range includes:

These pans are essential for cooking at high temperatures, searing, browning and grilling tender and tasty dishes. Their beeswax finish provides natural protection against oxidation, facilitates seasoning and improves non-stick properties.
