The company

A family culture
from Reims

When it was created in 1797, Charbonneaux used to make soap, before gradually shifting towards the denaturation of alcohol.

In the 1950’s, after six generations have succeeded one another, the company provided alcohol to the vinegar-makers.

In 1962, the company was acquired by alcohol distiller Maurice Brabant. This gave rise to the current company, Charbonneaux-Brabant, the only family-owned industry that guarantees the mustard and vinegar expertise of the Champagne region.

Grands Crus

Charbonneaux Brabant has developed its expertise in 9 production sites in France and 2 in Italy. The company is present in major distribution channels, including B2B, retail, catering, and foodservice, as well as internationally in over 80 countries.

With sustainability at the forefront of our focus, we strive to promote a policy of continuous improvement and a responsible approach towards both human well-being and the planet.
