In 2011, Patrick Bourgeois created a biscuit factory just off exit 7 (Bourg Sud) from the A40 motorway, as a tribute to his much-loved Bresse terroir.

His most popular biscuits, 'Gaudrioles' (which come in sweet and savoury varieties) are made using a local and unique ingredient: 'Gaude' flour, which is grilled corn flour. Over the years, butter shortbread, tuiles and other soft biscuits were added to the product range, as well as a whole host of other delicious treats.

In the shop, you can taste the products and also find a range of local products from the French department of Ain.
At 'Les Gaudélices', there is a big, free car park and access for people with reduced mobility.

It is also a bakery, sandwich shop and cake shop. Everything is made on-site. Gift ideas and a tea room.
