French officials said that only a small part of the mascots for the 2024 Paris Olympics will be made in France, and due to the change in the country’s manufacturing structure, most of the games will be made in China.

Released on November 14, Friges’ emblems with a red triangle, a smiley face, blue eyes, a tricolor ribbon and large colored sneakers are based on the symbol of the French Revolution.

Fridge toys are made by French companies Gypsy Toys and Doudouneo et Cie. Although they use fabrics produced in the French region of Brittany, most of the toys are made in China.

The Paris Olympic Committee said 8% of the tokens will be made in France and made from materials made in China, while the rest will be outsourced to China.

“I would like, we are working so that France has the raw materials and textile factories to produce two million dolls within a few months, but we cannot do that today,” government spokesman Olivier Ferrand said.

“It is a structural problem because France has lost its factories over the years,” he told France 2 television.

Veron said the government was working to relocate French companies that manufacture in China to ensure that “we produce tomorrow what we cannot produce today”.

France’s Association of Ethical Business Leaders said the choice was “a disgrace to all French companies” and there was still time to make millions of toys at home.

Christophe Piceau, Minister for Environmental Change, expressed hope that France would find a better solution amid environmental concerns.

We will not find ourselves in a time telling ourselves that we need local distribution networks and remanufacturing that produce tokens on the other side of the world, especially when we advocate in the fight against global warming. “It encourages local production,” Picchu said. .

Climate activists have pointed to pollution caused by the toys being shipped to France, contrary to the government’s pledge to take strong action against climate change.

With China taking nearly 70% market share of all products for the 2022 FIFA World Cup currently underway in Qatar, the Chinese Small Products Center has been manufactured in Yiwu Province of Zhejiang.

The 2024 Paris Olympic Games will be held in July and August and the Paralympic Games in August and September. Icons licensed products will be available in the official Paris 2024 boutique from November 15th.
