Family and History

the power of time

Founded in 1797, the Charbonneaux company used to make soap before gradually moving towards the denaturing of alcohol.

Its activity has evolved over time under the leadership of the Charbonneaux family, six generations of which followed from 1797 to 1962.

In 1962, Charbonneaux joined the Brabant family group, a major player in alcohol distillation.

The absorption in 1966 of the Gouthière Detré company, a vinegar producer, and then of Maison Florida in 1975, initiated for Charbonneaux-Brabant the development of a food industry.

The company continued its development to become a leading player in the manufacture of vinegars, mustards, oils, mayonnaises and sauces and is committed to preserving the art of local traditions and the French terroir.

As a true ambassador of French gastronomy, Charbonneaux-Brabant distributes its products in more than 80 countries.

With its history and family ownership, Charbonneaux Brabant has chosen a long-term vision driven by a strong social, societal and environmental conscience (SME+ certified).
