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.
The third generation has arrived since the 80s with Christophe & Éric Godard-Durand. The soul of the company has remained the same, with respect for a job well done.
Thanks to its employees, its producers and its customers, LAPARRA continues to develop while always keeping team spirit at its heart.
Our entire team is at your disposal to advance your projects. Its DNA, since 1946, is seriousness and good humor.
