60 million chocolates
That’s how many the Château-Gontier-sur-Mayenne site produces each year. Roland and Madeleine Réauté were far from imagining such numbers when they opened a bakery here in 1954. Their children and grandchildren extended the business into chocolate and today they supply such illustrious Parisian customers as Hédiard, la Tour d’Argent and Maxim’s.
Two specialities created by the founders are still popular today – called Mayottes and Carats.
Today, the creations of Réauté, made with 100% pure cocoa butter, are sold in 60 high-end stores in France (with local branches in Laval and Château-Gontier-sur-Mayenne).
