“My job is about generosity. Nothing is more difficult than expressing simplicity. Choosing produce, for me, is like choosing a wave for the surfer (my second passion) ; One must respect nature, the ocean, the land, stay as natural as possible, and learn each day new ways to express themselves with creativity … Searching for uniqueness in balance, providing a moment of emotion …It is also the desire to always learn and pass on, to teach and share our experience and our wealth” – Clement Fouqueré
