Peugeot Pepper Mill - made in France?

12th December 2015 12:31

Q Hello there, This is going to sound like a rather odd question, but I'm trying to find a pepper mill/grinder which is NOT made in a China. (I'm purchasing it as a gift for a friend from Taiwan, who has very strong personal/political objections to products manufactured in China, hence the difficulty.) The problem is that all the mills I've seen (and I've looked at a LOT now!) are manufactured in China, even if they are well-known European or American brands. The website or brand may have a strong European identity or are often designed in Europe, but the actual mill itself will say 'made in China'. I wondered if you sold any brands which are definitely, definitely not made in China?! Apologies again for the strange request! Many thanks, Em

A Hi Em

The Peugeot pepper mills are made in Alsace France. I can't say that ALL the parts are from there, as they will buy in some components parts, but the factory in France "designs, develops and assembles the mills" according to the Peugeot Chatel pepper mill label that I have just checked - this wood mill is also made from European wood, as I believe all the Peugeot wooden mills are. This may be the closest you are going to get as stainless steel or plastic parts in any mills, even the small crafts makers in the UK are likely to buy in parts that could be made in the Far East.

Best wishes - Claire
