A Family, A Company, A Belief
Cornu SA is a family company in the French part of Switzerland, and is now managed by Marc-André Cornu (grandson of the founder André Cornu), third generation of the family. Marc-André Cornu is a master baker and has learned a lot from both his Swiss and foreign experiences. Since its foundation in 1934 by André Cornu (Marc-André's grandfather), Cornu SA has produced the finest puff pastry products as well as other fine bakery products.
Marc-André is proud to say that in the profession, they have remained passionate craftsmen, in constant pursuit of excellence. Since André started in 1934, they have automated a lot, but never industrialized. In 2016 Marc-André Cornu, the appointed king of fine bakery and breadsticks/bread twists, inaugurated the new factory building in the village of Champagne (Switzerland), that includes a bakery shop, a pastry workshop and a “bistronomic” restaurant, and an interactive museum dedicated to the secrets of artisanal bakery.
The Cornu Family:
In 1934, masterbaker André Cornu founds his bakery in the village of Champagne in Switzerland, the Swiss fine bakery "CORNU S.A." is now the market leader in aperitif and cocktail snacks. For three generations, the Cornu family has been cultivating the art of traditional bakery and strives to provide consumers with products that are beyond reproach in quality and taste.
Family tradition since 1934
In the 1960s his son, Paul-André, takes over and develops the family business. He builds the foundations of the current company. He integrates André’s signature know-how into the manufacturing process. Machines are specifically designed to automate the master baker's gestures. Sophisticated technology combined with carefully selected raw materials, allow the Cornu family to continually improve the quality of their products.
Today, the company is run by the third generation. Under the direction of Marc-André Cornu, the company is still growing and continues to expand in Switzerland and abroad, while maintaining a human size and without compromising on raw materials.
