The rice Museum

Arles - Museum

In the heart of Camargue, ideally placed in the middle of rice plantations, the Rice Museum is a place steeped in history. The buildings are the birthplace of the Bongran factory, a pioneering business in the production and marketing of organic rice founded by Joseph Bon, the father of Robert.
The Bongran factory joined the Heureuse Camargue Group and was moved to Gimeaux, just outside Arles. The pioneering techniques developed by Joseph and Robert Bon, such as the natural drying of rice by the Mistral, are still practised today.
