Three new Solarpreneurs in France!

Posted 29 August 2022 by Eva Wissenz.

Thanks to the patient work of Arnaud, Elise, Benoist, Maxence and Loïc, three new French entrepreneurs decided to start using the Lytefire Deluxe manufactured in France to power their activity. They have been inspired by NeoLoco, Arnaud’s solar bakery, and by Lydiane and Manu, who have been the first to jump in and become "solarpreneurs" with Du Soleil et des Graines. Together in East France, Lydiane and Manu have now more than 50 retailers welcoming their solar roasted creations (see here).

 
L’Atelier Bélénos was created in Brittany, France, by Didier Ménard. "Bélénos" stands for the Gallic god of sun and health. The owner has a background of generalist engineer and is a former project manager in the cosmetics industry. Didier started the production around March 2022 and the marketing from mid-May. He solar makes cereal bars and roasted seeds for salads. He already has a dozen retailers.

Michel Mouillé is an environmental education trainer. He discovered the Lytefire thanks to NeoLoco and, as he was already offering courses and training focused on alternative cooking solutions with Idée d’en Faire, he was immediately interested. After several visits to the solar bakery, he decided to get his Lytefire Deluxe. He finds it "easy to use and quick to handle". He will soon start roasting his seeds and offer a local coffee. raise people’s awareness of the challenges of solar cooking. Below are some cool pictures of the pizza workshop he hosted for families in precarious situations and during the Low tech festival, l’Ouvre Boîtes (Can Opener).

Based in Normandy, in the Pays de Bray, Céline Puech launched Solé B’Rayon this summer. Céline has matured her project for a long time. With her Lytefire, she plans to create her own cereal bars as well as roasted seed mixes to replace crisps and peanuts for appetizers. She also created a nice ebook with healthy solar roasted seeds based recipes.
