It is in Provence that Le Roy René selects its exceptional raw materials, which combined with know-how perpetuated from generation to generation, sublimate its recipes. Almond and pistachio from Provence, melon from Cavaillon, candied fruits from Apt or Provence IGP lavender honey, this rich soil is at the origin of the famous Provencal confectionery.
Today, the Jardins du Roy René located outside the factory include a production almond grove of 300 trees, and a heritage orchard composed of fifty almond trees of 19 different Provencal varieties.
Since ancient times, the almond, this gift of the gods, has been the source of a thousand and one sweets. Grilled, sliced, in cream, in milk, it is the fruit of all desires.
