The brand was created in 1933 by André Besnier who by then was already a leading figure in the French dairy business. Explaining the name’s French context, Besnier explained that “France is the land of presidents, everyone is a president: of a club of fishermen, of bowlers, of veterans”. « La France est le pays des Présidents, tout le monde est président! De l’association de pêche, des boulistes, des anciens combattants. » (Presidential government had also enjoyed a higher profile in France since the return to power as president, in 1958, of leading president Charles de Gaulle.)
