BN (formerly known as Biscuiterie Nantaise) is a French brand of cookies and snacks founded in 1896. Its main competitor is LU.

The brand is now produced by the French division of Pladis (formerly United Biscuits, acquired in 1997) after having been owned by several multinational companies like General Mills (1969–1992) and PepsiCo (1992–1997), and long before that, it was a family company.
