Dakoté continues to grow with a number of partnerships and developments. 2023 promises to be a great year for the French start-up based in Montpellier, specializing in micro-pods and other high-potential plants.
A flying start to the new year, especially thanks to the distributor Metro. Already present throughout the region, the micro-pods of Dakoté are hoping to benefit from a referencing at the national level in January. “We are lucky to have the support of a large network that has been accompanying our development since early 2022 and will allow us to grow in France. We will then be able to work directly with the different sites that want it,” explains Aymeric Jahan, co-founder of Dakoté. For several years, Metro has been committed to local production, multiplying its partnerships with producers.
The micro-pods of Dakoté are already available in the Metro of Lons, Anglet, Bordeaux Lac, Bordeaux Gradignan, Agen, and Tarbes. Toulouse and La Rochelle should come next.
2023 will also mark a collaboration with the seed company Voltz Maraîchage for the launch of a new range. “We accompany them in research and development. The sampling and product tests are underway. We are already working with Fraichadour, and we hope to integrate other platforms of the network next year.”
Micro-pods continue to gain in popularity, as evidenced by the continued growth of the market. The demand is very strong for such products that are available all year round.
“Our micro-pods will be served for Christmas this year,” explains Aymeric, since the start-up also wants to work more closely with the professionals of Rungis. “We have sent samples to wholesalers, and we hope to be able to work with them in a few months.”
