Banquet d'Or® positions itself as a real partner and develops solutions adapted to everyone. Its offer therefore consists of raw, pre-proved, ready-to-cook or ready-to-serve frozen products that canbe adapted to any type of customer, but also culinary doughs that give free rein to the creativity of chefs.


An international player, Banquet d'Or® is present in more than 28 countries and has been able to adapt its offer to the culinary identity of each, by creating specific local ranges. As a worthy representative of French-style bakery products, its “best-sellers” in all countries are unsurprisingly the baguette and its half-size  and the croissant.

This worldwide success, Banquet d'Or® owes also to the Bake'Up technology, launched in 2000. This revolutionary technology allows to reduce the weight of its raw pastries by 60%, facilitating storage and transport, while significantly reducing its carbon footprint. Moreover, this unique technology, without changing the recipes and without compromising on quality, offers pastries that are completely ready-to-bake, without need for defrosting or proofing.

They go straight from the freezer to the oven, saving time and labor for professionals.




For its 40th anniversary, Banquet d'Or® will create 40 recipes illustrating the variety of its products and the versatility that they offer to professionals. It will broadcast them throughout the year on its social networks to inspire users and nurture their creativity.

Developed around the world, these recipes are also intended to highlight the international dimension of Banquet d'Or®.
