The LOUIT family founded their grocery empire centuries ago back in the mid 1700’s and went from strength to strength, becoming the largest grocers in south west France. In fact the founding patriarch was quite the legend and lived to be over 101 years old and died in the early 1800’s. The family continued their monopoly until 1945. They started producing their famous chocolate in the mid 1800’s.
