EXCELLENCE AND AUTHENTICITY
Pierre Lafitte founded his eponymous company in 1920, in the picturesque village of Montaut à Chalosse in Landes, in the south west region of France. It originally sold game, specializing in hares, partridges, ortolans, etc., as well as selling foie gras to traditional restaurants in the area. When he passed, his son Leon took over with his wife, Solange, and developed the business to new heights. In 1970, Lafitte found growth not only in France, but internationally, as well.
Lafitte has been a family business for four generations now, and has found a following amongst prestigious clientele—from restauranteurs, delicatessens, and retailers, and having their own stores across France. Their name is tantamount with excellence, quality, and authenticity, and is known to offer the best duck foie gras in the region.
