company profile

Company history

MOUTARDERIE BISTER is a family run business created in 1926. It is the leading Belgian mustard producer also producing sauces and condiments. We have two production sites : one in Belgium in Achêne (Ciney, Namur - Walloon Region) and one in France in Saint Thibault (Troyes, in Champagne - Aube).

Added Value

BISTER has over 40 different mustard recipes, the most famous being the « Moutarde L'Impériale », which is well known to Belgians (15% market share). BISTER also makes Dijon mustard with or without sulphite, organic mustards and mustard with honey for different beekeepers, among others. The piccalilli is the second flagship of the company, followed by gherkins, onions and cappers in vinegar and cold sauces.

We are also active on the private label market, gourmet delicatessen, with organic retailers and on the B-to-B market.

BISTER is one of the largest European manufacturers of certified organic mustards and condiments.

Our mustards and our range of organic products are very successful as distributor brands.
