Jean Gédouin, the visionary founder, who created PHYTOMER in 1972
The sound of the sea, the power of the waves, the cool, salty breeze…
It all began in Brittany, on the west coast of France, in 1972. There, in the gentle bay of Saint-Malo, a young entrepreneur named Jean Gédouin looked out to the sea.
The film recounts the story of PHYTOMER
Our history and our lives are closely intertwined with what surrounds us every day: the sea. We love it passionately and it serves us well. Thanks to the sea, we are able to develop exclusive high-quality products.
Through its support of SEA ART, PHYTOMER reaffirms its attachment to the sea. The magnificent documentary series directed by Maud Baignières uses Art as a way to build awareness of our need to save the oceans.

Antoine Gédouin, President of PHYTOMER
We are inspired by scientific research and by the beauty of the sea. To combine these passions, PHYTOMER created a unique laboratory entirely dedicated to marine biotechnologies. A laboratory where human synergies are combined to push the boundaries of research ever further.
