143 years: an impressive track record! Our story began in 1880, in the Parisian district of Les Halles, when Maison Chomette was founded.
Originally a paint shop, it soon expanded into a drugstore, also offering its customers printing and personalisation services. It was the start of an exciting journey during which it would serve the capital’s restaurants and cafés and then the entire country, before setting out to conquer the world through acquisitions and consolidation of the sector. The ECF Group’s unique identity has been forged, developed and shaped by 140 years of expertise, innovation, crises overcome and opportunities embraced.
