ANDROS combines the demand of a multinational industrial group and the values of a French family-owned business, proud of its rural roots for more than 100 years. Although fruit is historically at the heart of ANDROS’ DNA, the group’s expertise revolves around other know-how such as confectioneries, dairy products and frozen desserts.

ANDROS story is set in the verdant Lot fruit region in South-Western France, where the iconic Cère and Dordogne rivers converge.
Its beginnings took shape at the dawning of the twentieth century, in 1910, with a small fruit and nut business. It is the story of a family’s tenacious passion, not only for fruit, but also for their region. Generation after generation, their passion has grown, flourished, and been tirelessly pursued.
Bold with passion and wealthy with knowledge, ANDROS stepped into its jam-making activity during the 1950’s. Thereafter, it was not long before the brands BONNE MAMAN and ANDROS developed their own reputation for quality, both within France and internationally.
International recognition has not changed the bearing of ANDROS’s story: more than ever it is a tale of the pursuit of flavor; more than ever, a tale of the values of its origins; steadfastly told from a little village by the river.
Our “Savoir faire”
The second main activity of Andros is the production of dairy products. Andros’ expertise in yoghurt and dairy-based dessert lies in the strong know-how of our brand MAMIE NOVA.
