Beautiful Phototour of Le Creuset Cookware Factory #ManufacturingMonday @lecreuset @davidlebovitz
Food writer and blogger David Lebovitz took a tour of a Le Creuset (“Crucible”) factory showing some behind-the-scenes shots, from bags of aluminum oxide to color swatches to inspection lines.
Today, Le Creuset remains a popular brand, not just in France, but around the world, including across Europe, in the United States, and in Japan. (The last two are the largest buyers of their cookware in the world.) The original foundry was started in 1925 in the North of France, in Fresnoy-le-Grand, and is still making cookware today the same way they’ve been doing it for nearly a hundred years. The factory isn’t open to the public, because it’s an actual working foundry and isn’t set up for visitors.
