History & Anecdotes

Millet is an ancestral cereal whose first traces date back to -8700 BC.

Although they are present on several continents (Asia, Africa, and Europe), historical documents point to the first domestication of millet Setaria italica in China, around 6,000 to 7,000 years ago.

It was even one of the five sacred plants that the emperor sowed every year during a prestigious ceremony. In France, "the first trace of millet in official documents appears 2,000 years ago", explains historian Hervé Goulaze, specialist in the history of millet in the Landes region. Thus the two main millets grown in France were foxtail millet (Setaria italica) and common millet (Panicum miliaceum). There are a thousand and more varieties of millet.

Here we present a variety of conservatory: millet San Marino. A passer dommesticus is represented on the packaging because they are fond of millet.
