EXCELLENCE IN FRANCE SAVOIR-FAIRE Leading businesses open their doors to you

Entreprise et Découverte
Press kit

France is internationally recognized for its savoir-faire in many industries including luxury goods, gastronomy, handicrafts, energy and aeronautics. Touring a company allows the visitor to learn about the crafting or manufacturing of these high-quality products in the workshops and factories. Industrial tourism is a type of tourism which is innovative, authentic, cultural and human, and a transmitter of strong values. Industrial tourism is a French specialty. No other country has such a diverse offering (over 2,000 businesses from all industries), spread across the entire country and brought together under the Entreprise et Découverte umbrella. This sector has strong appeal with foreign audiences, but few are aware of this new industrial tourism offering and its most emblematic sites. In 2019, Entreprise et Découverte launched an international marketing campaign for industrial tourism in partnership with the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture. Excellence in the industrial tourism club, which included the best company tours, was created. These businesses have now been brought together under the label: Excellence in French Savoir-Faire.
