Peugeot is one of the most iconic French brands.
Peugeot salt mills and pepper mills appear on the greatest chefs’ tables; the history behind them is extraordinary.
Peugeot saveurs Manufacture
Peugeot saveurs is located in Quingey, East of France, next to the Swiss border. This company manufactures the most famous mills in the world. Everything is made in this French factory, a leader in export sales: design, technical development, as well as product manufacturing. Wood is turned, varnished, or painted; mechanisms are stamped, carefully assembled with such expert know-how. From their homeland, Made in France products are exported all around the world, in more than 80 countries.
Peugeot has officially been awarded the prestigious EPV label in recognition of its excellence.
This state-issued accolade pays tribute to French companies that have achieved the highest levels of traditional and industrial expertise.
Peugeot commitment to sustainability
The wood used for Peugeot’s mills is sourced from PEFC™-certified European forests. Each mill is assembled in France at our site in Franche-Comté. To protect the environment, post-manufacturing waste wood (chips and sawdust) is collected and recycled. Solvent-free paintings have been chosen for the coloured finishes as part of the company’s continuous improvement policy. Peugeot also has a strong social dimension by contracting suppliers which mainly employs handicapped people or in reintegration.
For more than 200 years, Peugeot has been imagining, designing and manufacturing the objects for daily life, aiming for ease of use and the truest expression of flavours. This constantly renewed engineering prowess has made the Peugeot brand the undisputed benchmark for mills.
Peugeot continues to draw strength from its rich legacy to mastermind new kitchenware and allow fine dining enthusiasts to discover new applications and treat their taste buds to new pleasures and experiences.
A new brand signature
A new logo with a more youthful and modern look illustrates the dynamic and impressive enthusiasm of the brand. A button with a striking design depicts the lion’s claw and will, from now on, adorn all products of the brand.
Peugeot has leveraged its experience in mills to extend its expertise to other sectors. Peugeot is actively committed to exploring other areas where flavours reign supreme and creating new instruments of taste to help foodies satisfy all their prepping and cooking needs, whether cutting, slicing, simmering, grating or decanting.
« Peugeot, with a sense of pride in its history and legacy, is established in time and in the collective imagination. It is a symbol of our family’s commitment to a territory and our connection to the values of expertise, innovation and style. Always aiming at the future, Peugeot boots even further its development in order to better support chefs, families and epicureans from the kitchen to the table. »
