At the end of the 18th century, France was the leading sugar trader in Europe and the port of Nantes played an important role in the processing of the cane as it arrived from the islands. La Perruche is the fruit of a family saga based in Nantes: the delicious secret recipe was invented in 1828 in André Cossé's confectionery workshop. In 1856, two Cossé sons took up the torch and created a refinery in Nantes. They continued to manufacture the traditional sugars with the authentic flavors and fragrances of the tropical islands, without changing their father's original recipe.

The unique flavor of their sugars won them several medals at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1889, the year famous for the construction of the Eiffel Tower. This exceptional recognition gave rise the following year to the brand name of "A la Perruche". Available in pure white cane or caramelized. One lump or two?
