The Druguet family takes over the business and refocuses on producing sausages and superior-quality dried meat. The Le Bastistou brand is born.
The adventure continues. Our production plant is being upgraded, and our products are gradually spreading across France. The leap to international markets is proving successful, as we are beginning to ship our products to Canada, Belgium and, soon, Asia.
Our story begins with a butcher whose passion and expertise leads him to produce cooked and dried meats that become well-known in the region and all the way to Paris. The meats are sold under the brand names Pigay and Père Baptiste.
The business is taken over by two friends in the industry, Jacques DESCHARMES et Patrick RICHAUD, who are attracted by the organoleptic qualities and the reputation of Le Batistou products. The company remains medium-sized, with 45 employees, and retains the enthusiastic Le Batistou spirit, values, high quality and commitment to customers.
