Clément Faugier (1861-1941), engineer of Ponts et Chaussées and mayor of the city of Privas, created his first processing plant for candied chestnuts in Privas in the Ardèche, while the pebrin decimated the populations of silkworms and caused the collapse of the Ardèche economy. In 1885, he had the idea of ​​recovering accidentally broken chestnuts to create the new product that will make his reputation: chestnut cream, which mixes broken candied chestnuts, chestnut pulp, glucose syrup, sucrose. and vanilla extract, according to a recipe that has remained the same since. The Crème de Marrons de l'Ardèche brand was not offered until forty years later, in 1924.

In more than 120 years, the Clément Faugier brand has developed numerous products derived from chestnuts (candies, chestnuts candied in alcohol, chestnuts in their natural state, flour, etc.) and a few others (fruit jams).
