East India Trading Company, from Brittany to India
Created in 1664, its object was to "navigate and negotiate from the Cape of Good Hope almost in all the Indies and Eastern Seas".
Its aim was to provide France with a tool for international trade with Asia and to compete with the powerful European Companies founded in the 17th century. It prospered in Brittany more or less happily until the French Revolution.
The company has actively participated in the culinary influence of France. The spices of its counters have inspired the greatest French cooks as well as the housewives of the island of Groix.
Curry and Kari Gosse are still honored on the best restaurants in Brittany and help creating, the other Caviar, our ‘’gourmandes’’ seafood rillettes.
