Crowning several years of efforts to raise our standards in the area of corporate social responsibility (CSR), Gabriel Meffre was awarded level 4 Exemplary of the AFAQ ISO 26000 assessment back in September 2018. Proud of this achievement, we have designed a CSR sticker which will promote our CSR commitments on our bottles.
