The Burrus familly
An industrial line from father to son
Located close to Strasbourg, SALPA (Société Alsacienne de Participations Agro-alimentaires) is a holding company born from the 1997 merger of the Compagnie Française de Chocolaterie et de Confiserie (CFCC) and the Chocolat et Confiserie de Luxe (CCL).
Those two companies were initially founded by Paul Burrus, inspired purchaser of the chocolate brands Schaal, Salavin and Marquise de Sévigné. As pioneers of chocolate, the Burrus family has been passing on innovation and expertise for three generations since 1912.
Jean-Paul Burrus, Paul's son, extended the product range by integrating Cofféa - a brand specializing in the sale of tea, coffee and chocolate - into what was to become Holding SALPA. The foundations of a large group were laid, uniting manufacturing and distribution within a sole entity.
