1840At the beginning : Léon Bouley, his oil-works and his mustard mill...
Léon BOULEY founded a mustard mill and oil producers way back in 1840.
It was not long before the quality of his products was noticed and recognised by his peers, resulting in the award of a diploma from the City of Paris, in 1903 during the Great International Exhibition.
His inheritors, anxious to preserve this renown, were to continue in his footsteps, paying the utmost attention to the quality of their products and marrying tradition with innovation.
1923New recipes come to enrich the range
In 1923, Mr JACOB launched manufacture of the "Pure Burgundy Verjuice" mustard.
In 1925, Mr Paul CHATEAU extended mustard production to include vinegar pickles and relishes.
1928A new impulse with Edmond Fallot's arrival
It was with Mr Edmond FALLOT that the business was to really reach its peak.
Taking over the mill from Mr CHATEAU in 1928, he managed to instil a new lease of life into the business, despite the difficulties inherent in the Second World War.

In 1945, his son-in-law, Mr Roger DESARMENIEN, joined the company. He took over management in 1962 on the death of his father-in-law.
1994Marc Désarménien in charge of the last independant mustard mill in Burgundy
The last comer, in 1987, was Mr Marc DESARMENIEN, the grandson, who joined his father in the family business, to pick up the baton definitively in 1994. Very attached to his region and to the know-how of a job which he observed since his earliest childhood, il is with the firm will to modernize the company while protecting the main part : the slow destruction of seeds in the stony grindstone, that Marc Désarménien took the head of the family house. One of his main purposes : revitalize products by innovative recipes, rooted in the Burgindian country and adapted with current tastes.
