THE HISTORY OF OUR CHOCOLATE FACTORY

Maison Bernachon is a family story born in Lyon and has become an iconic chocolate factory ! It is above all, knowledge and expertise transmitted from generation to generation. The story begins in 1953, when Maurice Bernachon aims to transform raw cocoa beans into chocolate.

Passion, Rigoursness, Tradition and Excellence. From 1953 until today, with an intact expertise and a passion more alive than ever of "maitre chocolatiers".

Jean-Jacques Bernachon was born on October 27, 1944.
In 1966, Jean Jacques left to work in Amsterdam for six months with Bensdorp, then, in 1968, we found him in Paul Bocuse's brigade. It was on June 19, 1969 that the marriage of Françoise Bocuse and Jean-Jacques Bernachon was celebrated.

CREATION OF THE “PRESIDENT”

THE PRESIDENT'S STORY

CREATION OF THE “PRESIDENT”

The “President”, the most famous cake from Maison Bernachon, is a real creation, with a singular origin. Indeed, in February 1975, Paul Bocuse was to receive the Legion of Honor from the hands of President Valéry Giscard d'Estaing.
For this great occasion, Maurice Bernachon and Paul Bocuse wish to arrive at the Elysée with a never-seen-beforedelicacy. It will be the “President”, specially created for the occasion (the 1st one, madefor 20 people weighed 3 kg!).
40 years later, the "President" still thrills gourmets from around the world.
