According to historians, it is in the 13th century that the mustard of Meaux was for the first time enjoyed by a King of France, but it is only in 1632 that it appeared in an official way, at the royal table. At that time, manufactured exclusively by the monks of Meaux, it was called "Moutarde de Meaux".
The Pommery family perpetuated the production of mustard without ever delivering the secret of manufacture until 1927, before the company was bought back by the "Vinaigrerie du Lion de Lagny", the traditional vinegar supplier for the Moutarde de Meaux® Pommery®. In 1949, "Les Assaisonnements Briards" company was created by the new owners, the Chamois family, once the secret receipe was transmited to them in order to continue the traditional making of this delicious mustard.
Moutarde de Meaux® Pommery has kept its manufacturing secrets and remained unchanged since, thanks to selected ingredients but also the continuity of unequaled know-how, the result of a successful family transmission through centuries.
