Ten centuries ago, the French discovered the sweet taste of cane sugar during the Crusades . But the earliest reference dates back to when the Persian Emperor Darius set out to conquer the Indian subcontinent and discovered a plant which he allegedly said ""gives honey without bees"". This luxurious and rare gift of nature, which was initially called a "spice", is still considered as an exceptional product
The La Perruche brand was created in the latter part of the 19th century and won several medals at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1889, the year famous for the construction of the Eiffel Tower!
Since this date, La Perruche has contributed to establishing French gastronomy worldwide.
These days La Perruche has been adopted in the culinary cultures of all 5 continents and is served in the world's most elegant hotels and restaurants.
