Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. mile-Justin Menier (18 May 1826 - 17 February 1881) French pharmaceutical manufacturer, chocolatier, and politician, was born in Paris. In 1853, on the death of his father, Antoine, mile-Justin Menier inherited a large and successful Parisian company that manufactured a range of medicinal powders.His father's company also manufactured chocolate as part of his business and mile-Justin Menier would eventually devote himself to the making of chocolate. His Menier Chocolate company purchased cocoa-growing estates in Nicaragua and sugar beet fields in France, erected a processing mill, and equipped itself in other ways for the production of chocolate on a large scale. In 1864 he sold his interest in the drug-manufacturing business, and thenceforth confined himself to chocolate, building up an immense trade. He built a factory in London, England in 1870 and the next year he hired architect Jules Saulnier to design a new chocolate factory to replace their existing facility in Noisiel.
