Historical Note

The Chocolat Pupier brand was created in Saint-Étienne, France, in the 1860s. The founder, Jean-Louis Pupier, handed over the company to his son Joseph in 1895. His grandsons Adrien and Marcel Pupier succeeded their father in 1919. The company included trade cards in with their products. When collectors completed a full set of cards, they could redeem them for a gift. In 1938 the company issued a series of chocolate trade cards with the theme of countries of the world. Business declined after the second war, and the company was bought in 1957 and passed from hand to hand before disappearing in 1970. The brand belongs today to the group Cémoi.
