From a family adventure, which began in 1871, when Victor MANE started producing fragrant materials from regional flowers and plant, the small distillery which has continually been run by the MANE family grew successfully to become one of the leading Fragrances and Flavours companies worldwide.
When, in 1995, Maurice MANE retired to become Chairman of the Supervisory Board, his eldest son Jean was appointed President of the MANE Group, and his other son Michel, President of the Americas Region.
Today the Group covers all continents thanks to its 50 R&D centres and its 27 manufacturing sites. It has posted turnover figures which have shown uninterrupted and robust growth over the past ten years.
MANE is the first French group and one of the worldwide leaders of the Fragrance and Flavour industry. The headquarters are based in Le Bar-sur-Loup, in Southern France, near Grasse.
