We aim to find new uses for end-of-life products.
Our company’s main objective is to promote the revalorisation of food and non-food products, particularly by repurposing them via associations.
We also aim to engage more broadly in reutilisation, recycling and upcycling dynamics, in collaboration with other industry actors.
We believe that the future lies in the collaborative economy and the optimum management of existing resources. That’s why the PHENIX team has created a pioneering organisation of waste reduction – and why it wants to fully integrate a new generation of stakeholders looking to create innovative solutions for as many people as possible.
Our motto is Lavoisier’s famous maxim: “Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed”.
PHENIX is a democratic, social enterprise that’s proud of the social and environmental impact of its services and the meaning behind its activities.
A significant proportion of the value created by PHENIX is reinvested in the company in line with its founders’ values.
Our team is built on a platform of shared values:
– trust, dynamism, team spirit and the primacy of the common good on one hand;
– professionalism, innovation and usefulness on the other.
