Specialist in pâté in verrines since 1895


Over a century of experience ...

The family business Jean Brunet was created in 1895 by Louis Brunet. A few years later, his son Henri took over the business and developed charcuterie products.

Jean Brunet, Henri's son, succeeded his father and became the manager of the company in 1962. Subsequently, he launched a new development strategy based on the production of pâtés and glass terrines and conserves.

It was in 1980 that Jean Brunet set up his premises in Rabastens-de-Bigorre, at the foot of the French Pyrenees, in the South-West, a region rich in culture and gastronomy.

From 1986 to 1995, the company developed rapidly thanks to the mechanisation of its production which led to significant growth in its business.

High-quality products, traditional skills and strong demand, have enabled the company to obtain the IFS certification in 2014. This certification assures the supply of healthy products to consumers. It allows to work with the most demanding distributors at the international level. This is a real competitive advantage for the company, which is the only pâté producer in Occitanie to have this certification. In 2021, the Brunet cannery obtains the IFS version 6 .

In 2016, the company passed down to a new team of managers who aspired to develop its activity at national and international level .
