Since the first tests carried out by Marc Grégoire in the late 1950s, Tefal has constantly evolved and is now a world leader, not only in non-stick frying pans, its flagship product launched to great acclaim in 1956, but also in many other cooking products and small electrical appliances. The recipe for this success: constant innovation. Tefal has always striven to listen to consumers and anticipate changes in their lifestyles in order to offer products suited to their needs.
Tefal has kept up with two essential phenomena. First of all, the kitchen's role in the home has totally changed. It has become the shared central focus for the whole family, the place where people come together, talk and welcome guests. At the same time, our relationship with food has undergone a profound transformation. Preparing a meal is no longer a burden – cooking has become a pleasurable experience. Today, Tefal produces 50 million products and the brand has a presence in over 120 countries.
Tefal aims to remain a symbol of innovation, and seeks to anticipate the developments that will revolutionise the home in order to imagine the essential items of the future in the kitchen and throughout the house. Technological developments and consumers' expectations provide a glimpse of some exciting prospects: the connected kitchen, user support, the trend for ever-healthier food, more powerful robotics… These are all areas where Tefal is committed to offering surprises.
