« As for the future, your task is not to foresee it, but to enable it » – Saint- Exupéry
The spirit of the group
Orwell has created a family spirit that always favors a long-term vision.
The group’s vocation is to ensure the development of each of its subsidiaries while respecting their identity and autonomy by providing them with all the resources necessary for the creation, manufacture and selective distribution of their products.
It is through their products and brands that our subsidiaries become ambassadors for animal welfare.
They make a point of optimizing tools, methods and processes in order to maximize the profitability of their operations and ultimately finance their development and ensure their sustainability.
The success of a project comes, above all, from the women and men who create and manage companies.
We believe that a modern and innovative company is a company that listens to the well-being of its employees.
At Orwell Participations, there are 3 fundamental values that are shared by all. These three axes are the pillars of our performance and our sustainability.
”Beeing CREATIVE and innovativeCreativity and innovation are in our genes. Over time, they have ensured the success of our structures and established their legitimacy. As the foundation of our subsidiaries, this creativity-innovation tandem is at the core of a delicate equation: renewing our offer and being resolutely turned towards the future, while respecting the past.
”OFFERING excellenceWithin the group, there is no compromise on quality. We embody the world of craftsmanship and commerce at its noblest, we pay meticulous attention to detail and perfection: from product to service, it is in this quest for excellence that we cultivate our difference.
”CULTIVATING the entrepreneurial spiritThe group's decentralized organization is agile and encourages efficiency and responsiveness. It stimulates individual initiative by entrusting significant responsibilities to each person. Our entrepreneurial spirit facilitates risk-taking and encourages perseverance; it requires a pragmatic mindset and an ability to mobilize teams by driving them towards ambitious goals.
Orwell Participations is positioned in markets requiring strong product expertise and an flawless experience.
We work to offer all our customers a complete range of products and a constantly improving quality service.

« The real riches are the methods » – Nietzsche
Gautier Moulard embarked on the adventure of entrepreneurship in 2006, after an engineering degree and a first professional life in web marketing.
He develops content sites with a high audience (cab.fr / ski.fr / sos-nounou.fr), monetizes them before selling them in 2009.
In 2009, he created a call center and worked on omni-channel issues, which were already present at the time, until its sale at the end of 2011.
From December 2011 to September 2012, Gautier works as an independent consultant for e-retailers in the Rhône-Alpes region. He accompanies them on issues of organization and performance optimization.
It is at the end of 2012 that Gautier embarked on the adventure of E-commerce.
Passionate about innovation, he combines his permanent desire to undertake and one of his interests: e-commerce. Noting that the E-commerce industry is already very competitive, he quickly concludes that the future will be either Amazon or vertical sites specialized on a market and/or with an important part of “Homemade” products.
The project takes shape during an interaction between friends when the subject of feeding the house cat is brought up! “Few nutritional advices for new cat owners”, “a myriad of food brands”, “The bags of kibble weigh a ton and I’m tired of putting them in the trunk when I go to the garden center”…
The consumer needs a personalized quality advice according to his pet and not to spend 2 hours reading the analytical composition of the 200 brands on the market. Moreover, if he can avoid carrying kilos during his daily purchases, he might as well not deprive himself and buy online.
Faced with this simple observation, Gautier launched its first online sales site: lafermedesanimaux.com. It was a great success, and it’s just the beginning.
Orwell Participations is also the story of a close-knit team!
With their experience in e-commerce, they gave birth to the Orwell Participations group, which naturally positioned itself on a build-up strategy with the avowed ambition of combining significant size and attractive profitability profile, an atypical equation in French e-commerce.
