Our history

The family business Laparra is founded

Photo taken of the Halles and the Baltard pavilions in Paris in 1946. Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Trade.

It is in the heart of Les Halles, with their magnificent Baltard pavilions, nicknamed “the belly of Paris” by Emile Zola, that the LAPARRA Agency was created by Madame Durand née Laparra. Directed at the beginning by Mr. Louis Durand, the company mainly marketed dry food products. Then from the years 1955/60, fresh fruits and vegetables.

At the beginning of 1959, after long debates, the Council of Ministers decided by ordinance to transfer the Halles from Paris to Rungis, because of the permanent congestion of the capital every morning.

It was 10 years later, in 1969, that the big move took place. In 1975, Jean Pierre Durand took over from his father.
