Specialist in the design and manufacture of
material for vegetable cultivation

The brand name Briand was created in 1978 by Mr Briand then bought by the Simon Group in 2004, bringing it into the Group as part of the company Simon. A strong synergy was born.

Briand designs and manufactures a specialist range of material for post-harvest treatment of vegetables: washing, grading, weighing, packaging, etc. The company's expertise has led to the international success achieved by its salad-vegetable washers and leek washer-peelers: more than 1,000 units delivered to date in France and worldwide. Thanks to its creativity, Briand has expanded its selection with innovative equipment for washing, grading and preparing carrots, turnips, celery, radishes - this has led to its being awarded a number of trophies for its fertile imagination, which it has placed at your service.

Located in the heart of the vegetable-growing Loire valley, near Nantes, the company developed in collaboration with the local vegetable farmers before spreading throughout the world.
