LA SAVONNERIE DU MIDI
Founded in Marseille in 1894, the Savonnerie du Midi is one of the last historical soap factories in Marseille to perpetuate the recipe and know-how of traditional Marseille soap. This factory is steeped in history and is located at the bottom of the Carmes valley, in the Aygalades district in the 15th arrondissement of Marseille.
Employing around twenty people, the Savonnerie du Midi is part of the Compagnie du Midi, which the family business PRODEF bought in 2013.
Today, the Savonnerie du Midi still relies on the talent of a master soap maker to produce its traditional Marseille soap in a cauldron.
La Savonnerie signed the PaQte (Pacte avec les Quartiers pour toutes les entreprises) with the Minister for the City Nadia Hai and Marie Aubert, Prefect Delegate for Equal Opportunities, whose aim is to participate in the economic and social development of the priority neighbourhoods of the Marseille area.
