Our story: a family
and gourmet adventure.

The Maison Pralus was founded in Roanne, where Auguste Pralus opened a patisserie in 1948. His creativity combined with the quality of the products he worked with earned him an immediate success. In 1955, he created the famous Praluline®, a brioche with pink pralines that quickly became the city's signature product. That same year, he was awarded the prestigious award of Meilleur Ouvrier de France pâtissier chocolatier. When he took over the family business, his son François created the chocolate factory and established a network of stores where his range of chocolates and the Praluline®, made by the pastry chefs in front of their customers, are sold.

Madagascar

Our Chocolate

Working with cocoa beans purchased from producers around the world, François Pralus dreamed of owning his own plantation. He is one of the few chocolate makers to roast his own beans and to make his chocolate from the ground up.

The Praluline

One fine morning, Auguste Pralus placed a pink praline brioche in his window. Since «that blessed day in 1955», in the words of his son François, the Praluline® has never left the front window of Pralus shops. The Praluline® has become the company's flagship product and the ambassador of the culinary savoir-faire of the Roanne region. It is now available in 18 stores in France.

François Pralus enthusiastically talks about his passion for «real» chocolate.
Cocoa beans have a unique character depending on the origin of the bean, the soil and the expertise of the cocoa farmer. Like great wines, we can talk about cocoa vintages. Venezuela grade-up has a light smoky taste, Trinitario superior class is woody, powerful and slightly acid. Fine and sour, Madagascar cocoa has red fruit flavors...
