Didier Perréol, Ekibio's founder and chairman, and Charles Kloboukoff, Léa Nature's founder and chairman. Organic pioneers in France
Created by Charles Kloboukoff in 2009, the Compagnie Biodiversité holding company spans the Léa Nature group (health, cosmetics, health foods, food), founded in 1993; the Biolea group (organic ready-made dishes, organic fruit and vegetable juices), founded in 2010 with the help of Daniel Gevaert; and the Ekibio group (food, personal and home care products), founded by Didier Perréol in 1988.
Since 2014, Compagnie Biodiversité has held 70% of Ekibio, thereby sealing the union between the two leaders of France's organic revolution, privately owned by French shareholders. Ekibio and Léa Nature share a common history of successful family businesses, built on an unwavering commitment to organic farming, the consolidation of French organic manufacturing SMEs, and the marketing of leading brands.
Didier Perréol (Ekibio's founder and chairman) and Charles Kloboukoff (Léa Nature's founder and chairman) are both visionary leaders with the same philosophy about Organic and the same belief in a business model that revolves around people, product innovation, independence, expanding the organic farming sector, valuing the land ...
For them, a more organic world is a better world.
Compagnie Biodiversité now spans 21 organic brands and 2,500 products, which are forging ahead in their long-standing distribution channels: organic shops only for Ekibio, and mostly high-volume retailers for Léa Nature.
