Our group

A passion for biscuits for over 20 years...

In order to preserve the richness and unique expertise associated with traditional Breton biscuit-making, Loc Maria Biscuits has united several brands and plays a major economic role in France and abroad on the premium biscuits market.

Our expertise

Historically, our expertise focuses on three iconic Breton recipes: the crêpe dentelle, the galette and the palet.

For each of these three world-renowned specialities, we strive to offer delicious, crunchy biscuits presented in high-quality packaging.

Our pastry chefs, technicians, packaging experts and quality specialists work every day to preserve our recipes and produce a large number of top-quality biscuits in packaging that ensures they reach you in perfect condition.
