Our history

Founded in 1967, Duval positions itself as one of the last independent great Parisian caterers.

The human-size of our company promotes a true team spirit that definitively rooted our House in the move and modernity since its creation. Considered today as one of the most dynamic caterer on the Parisian market, we design, create and sign over 3,500 events per year, all services included.

Our Philosophy

We foster a tailored relation with our customers to whom we attach the highest importance, all the while demanding beauty and good from others and from ourselves.

We share the same passion

Culinary art also means conviviality, feast and generosity. This means more than 70 associates, including about thirty cooks and pastry-cooks sharing the same passion and a constantly renewed desire: creating unique moments that reflect your personality, the personality of your company or your desires, to make your event an unforgettable experience.

Environmental and Social Responsibility

When pursuing activities where all has to be mastered in the greatest details, quality, more than a philosophy, is for Duval an unstinting requirement and a promise on the long term.

Strong commitment

Mindful of our customer environmental concerns, we are committed in an approach of social responsibility for our Company, in compliance with the ISO 26000 standard. We focus our efforts on environmental preservation and the daily improvement in quality of life with respect for human and social relations, and commitments to our charter for sustainable development.

As part of the constant improvement of this charter, we have been engaged for a few months in a process leading to ISO 20121 certification. This international standard, specific to the events sector, aims to promote sustainable development by taking these three aspects into account.

Our Know-how

Under the aegis of Alain Villard, patisserie chef, and Sébastien Marchetti, head chef in charge of Research & Creation, our teams are inspired by a ‘’Gastronomy without frontiers’’, aiming to share with you culinary and tasty emotions, while offering you the best of the French craftsmen’s know-how. Our requirement is creativity, rigor and commitment in every instant. We select the best products from original terroirs according to their seasonal nature, to guaranty constant quality and optimal freshness.

Aiming to higher standards at all times

Whether to create an exceptional gala dinner to sublimate a cocktail reception with culinary workshops, to embellish a day of convention, to manage an international congress for several days or even to be the gastronomic partner of major sporting and cultural events… For us every event is unique. All our services are very demanding in terms of quality, and commitment without forgetting a touch of creativity.
