In 1907 Jean-Baptiste and Anaïs Ferrero settled in Algiers and assembled a workshop of couscous. The wheat semolina was then rolled by hand and cooked in couscoussiers. Settled down in Provence since 1953, Ferrero adapted this know-how and has selected for you best durum wheats. As Ferrero feels concerned to let you discover new ways of consumption and simple daily meals, it developed a range of products including high-quality polenta in order to satisfy all of customers’ desires.
