Biovie, the force of life
A real portal for organic and living food, our goal is to provide quality products, while sharing knowledge and know-how around this art of living. In addition to supporting those who already practice it, what we want is also to support those who are new to this transition, as well as anyone who wants to know how to go about becoming a raw eater.

- All you need to know about the methods to become a raw eater and transform your food step by step, partially or totally.
Human being and the environment: a set of values at the service of living things
Biovie wants to be a militant company in the service of living things. Our company proudly embodies its values throughout its business chain, while promoting them to the general public.
Quality: We guarantee optimum quality for each of our products. This is our priority. The majority carry the organic label or respect ethical procedures when organic is not possible or does not yet exist (example: freeze-dried durian does not exist organically)
Authenticity : We are the first consumers of the products we sell and the first users of the devices we manufacture such as the Easygreen sprouter, the MixMeUp blender, or the devices we import such as the Sahara dehydrator. This is the guarantee of offering items whose qualities have been assessed and verified by us and of which we personally know the strengths and weaknesses.
Traceability: We systematically meet with each of the producers and manufacturers of our products, when the sanitary situation allows it. Excluding COVID, we spend several months a year on travel. Thus, we personally control the origin and production conditions, in order to offer them to you with confidence, in addition to our organic certification at Ecocert.
Fair trade: By reducing intermediaries, we guarantee the fairest price, from producer to consumer. When we can, we favor French or European products, and when we carry out imports, we favor fair trade (as for tigernuts or coconuts) and / or we check the production conditions ourselves.
Organic farming and agronomy: Eric is an ISTOM agronomist (tropical agronomy). ISTOM was founded in 1907 and is present in almost every country in the world. Eric has also chosen to work in organic farming internationally since 1993 and has field expertise in tropical areas as in France of the weak points of the organic sectors that he endeavors to take into account.
Ethics: We, personally, or through third party programs, ensure that our products are obtained in decent working conditions for employees.
Eco-responsible approach: We pay particular attention to ensuring that our activity has the least possible environmental impact. From the means of transport to the packaging of the products, our choices are guided by respect for the environment. However, certain aspects of our activity can still be improved, such as the use of recycled plastics, for example, or we come up against the non-existence of biobased or recycled plastics approved for contact with food. We nevertheless take care to improve our processes and are receptive to constructive criticism.
Listening: It is by remaining attentive to your needs that we are constantly adapting our offer. For example, by making references available on our store based on your suggestions, or by adapting the packaging volume according to your comments. Some of our products have been suggested to us by pediatricians, therapists or clients. Do not hesitate to give us a suggestion!
Innovation: When a product remains difficult to find when there is a demand, we are not afraid to create new channels. We have done this, in particular for fresh coconuts, tigernuts and even whole aloe vera leaves for which we were the first introducers in France.
Committed publisher: To print our books as committed publishers, for 15 years we have chosen the most ecological and social printing company in France, Pure Impression. It uses vegetable-based inks, runs on solar energy, pays parity between men and women and uses electric vehicles.
At the origin of Biovie
At the origin of Biovie, there is Éric Viard, a graduate in tropical agronomy and formerly employed in the organic sector for ten years. Convinced of the obvious benefits of living food, the effects of which he himself sees on his health and well-being, he is driven by the desire to introduce it to you and share its benefits.
At the start of the 2000s, it all started with this observation: on one hand, there was a large public showing a growing interest in organic and living food. On the other hand, there is a huge lack of concrete medium to meet the need for information and resources on this subject.
It is from this problem that an idea sprouted: to translate and edit the book Healthful Cuisine. The book was originally written and published in the United States by Dr. Brian Clément, director of Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida.
After organizing living food courses for the general public with Brian Clement in France in 2005 and 2006, Biovie company was born in 2007 from this editorial project. It was to finance this first publication that Eric started the online marketing of the EasyGreen automatic sprouters, a brand now owned by Biovie.
Two years later, the book was published in 5,000 copies. The e-commerce activity is growing and diversifying, until meeting Aurélie in 2015, herself previously employed in an organic store.
Around this common interest, the alliance of these two complementary personalities enriches the company. Biovie further broadens its vision, until becoming today one of the major players in living food.
