Our roots feed our future

Our heritage is based on our passion for our profession and the specific spirit of independence of a small family business. Since 1895, the year of Léon Bourgeois and his brothers' acquisition of the mill of Couargis located 2 km away from our current mill, we have been working from generation to generation for a continuous and sustainable development.

    Extension of our organic mill

Located near a listed site, our new buildings were built under approval of the "Bâtiments de France" (the French architectural review board). Because preserving our environment is essential to us, we have restored the mill of Couargis as a symbol of our commitment. It offers great potential and the mill-wheel never stops turning!
