Clement Faugier Chestnut Puree
The story of Clément Faugier, or how two families linked their history to that of the Ardèche chestnut. It was in 1882 when the local Ardèche economy was going through a crisis, that Clément Faugier, a young man from the region, created the first factory of Chestnuts in Privas. With a gastronomic tradition, he combines innovation and daring, thus achieving the industrial production of Marron Glacé. Meanwhile, it retains the qualities of artisanal know-how. The history of Clément Faugier was perpetrated by the children, in particular Charles Faugier. He was the “master confectioner” whose son, Jean, joined forces with the Boiron family, the main supplier of chestnuts.
Since 1970, Claude Boiron and today his son Jean-David Boiron now chairman of the company, perpetuating the traditions established by Clément FAUGIER. Linking the two ends of the chain, of the chestnut and the chestnut of quality to a production respectful of traditions, Etablissements Clément Faugier today tells a story made from passion and consistency, where the meeting of two professional practices combine perfectly.
