French-American Foundation talk about Prat Dumas

“Today there are 1,130 EPVs, 341 of which have been around for a hundred years or more. One of these is Prat Dumas, the oldest French company still in operation. Its roots go back to 1309, when a monastery owned by Pope Clement V crafted crude writing paper. In the 1800s, the monks’ successors developed filter paper for a pharmacist in Bergerac, and it is this specialization that permitted Prat Dumas to negotiate the tricky transition from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. Today their vast array of filter papers includes such items as extraction thimbles, which analyze the fat and protein contents of food.”
