He started by developing recipes with eggplants. His entourage then encouraged him to pursue and to launch a company to commercialize his creations.

In 2001, Roland PIRONATO founded LES ANTONIN SARL, and starts at Nimes, as the Chamber of Trade offered him a stand to exhibit his eggplants recipes during the Fair “Du Printemps de l’Olivier”, an annual event very popular with the general public.
Roland PIRONATO does not transform the products he is a compositor: he combines products without altering their essence, to transmit to each senses the original characteristics of the products used. The vision of the Founder is that vegetables are as human beings, each has its own place in the ecosystem, with a specific age and personality.
