1855: what would Jean-Pierre Meyers say if L'Oréal was run like this?

France2 call 1855 a fraud (arnaque)

Yet another all too common story here in Nord éclair of a customer, William Alan Chapman living in Buisson in the Vaucluse, who ordered two cases of 2008 en primeur from 1855 in may 2012. To date he has received nothing despite successfully taking the company to court. 1855 has been ordered to pay 3468€ to Chapman. However, when the bailiff was sent in to collect, 1855 said they had no money in their account and proposed to pay the sum by instalments!

It is no surprise that those – Emeric Sauty de Chalon and Fabien – running the 1855 fraud carry on their 'business' in this appalling fashion. What is increasingly surprising is that Jean-Pierre Meyers continues to prop up the 1855 'fraud'. Would Jean-Pierre Meyers allow L'Oréal to be run in this fraudulent fashion? Equally would Jean-Pierre Meyers (director of Nestlé Global) countenance similar fraudulent dealing by Nestlé Global? The answer must surely be certainly not. So why does Jean-Pierre Meyers continue to support 1855 that has been dubbed a fraud by France2?  


A round up here on of pressure building on 1855.

Article in New York Times on L'Oréal, the Bettencourts especially Jean-Victor Bettencourt, son of Jean-Pierre Meyers and Françoise Bettencourt, who has recently joined the L'Oréal board.

« Parce que je le vaux bien ... » used to be L’Oréal’s slogan in TV spots. We all remember gorgeous Claudia Schiffer shaking her blonde head of hair while pronouncing it.
Because I’m worthy of it .....
Could 1855’s motto not be: “Parce que je ne vaux rien .....” ?
