Spice Mills


Peugeot Saveurs is located in the town Quingey near Besançon, in the French region of Doubs. With about 130 employees, the company is proud to make the world’s most celebrated spice mills. From research and development to manufacturing, the Peugeot Saveurs factory is where the wood is turned, then varnished or painted; where our exclusive spice-specific mechanisms are cut with pin-point accuracy, then assembled and fitted.
