There exists a long-standing tradition of growing sugar beets in France, especially in Normandy, in the Centre region (south of the Paris area) and in the Hauts-de-France. That is why French sugar and sweeteners are of very high quality. Our partner sellers show a lot of creativity : some of them even make sugar chips shaped like hearts, flowers, teapots or croissants ! A more classical article is rock sugar, with which bakers decorate tropézienne tarts and chouquettes.
French brown sugar is not made with beets, but with 100 % pure cane sugar. This raw material is collected every year between July and December, from non-GMO sugar cane plantations in overseas territories such as the Reunion Island. Brown sugar’s distinctive strong taste makes it the perfect ingredient for sweetening tea and coffee, as well as for baking cakes, pancakes and cookies. Looking for an original product ? Vergeoise can be prepared with sugar canes or sugar beets, and it adds a yummy caramel aroma to French pastries. In northern France, this sugar product is used for the traditional recipe of the sugar tart.

There are hundreds of wonderful honey-making companies in France. Many of them are family-owned and have been producing honey for generations. Each honey pot product has a unique flavor, depending on its region of origin and on the variety of flowers pollinated by the bees. For instance, chestnut tree honey and white heather honey possess a long-lasting aftertaste. Fir honey, on the contrary, has a lighter, more floral aroma.
In France, artisanal honey is often eaten on a slice of baguette for breakfast. But it also tastes delicious with crepes or yogurt. Some foodies even use it as a tea sweetener. Just like agave syrup, it is a healthier alternative to refined sugar.
