In 1885, Philibert Jacquet, a Parisian baker, lodged a patent for crispbread and founded the Jacquet brand. He was awarded a gold medal at the 1889 Paris Exposition Universelle for this product.
In 1962, Duroi was created to meet the needs of a new type of trade – large retailers. Jacquet and Duroi were pioneering brands, as they established the sandwich bread market in France.
The Jacquet brand has operated for many years in the pre-packaged bread market (including sandwich bread, appetizer breads, part-baked breads, and crispbreads).
The Brossard brand was founded in 1931 by Georges Brossard, a pastry chef, and made its name thanks to the boudoir (ladyfinger), a delicious, light, egg-based sponge biscuit, dusted with sugar.
In 1962, in the middle of the period of industrialisation, consumers discovered a unique, delicious, soft, marbled chocolate cake: the Savane was born!
Nowadays, Brossard produces a wide range of pastries for children and adults alike: the famous marbled Savane, brownies, layer cakes, fruit cakes, ladyfingers, sponge fingers…to be shared with the family or enjoyed in individual portions.
In 1932 Joseph Milcamps founded his waffle factory. For almost a century, Milcamps has used its historical savoir-faire to develop a wide range of waffles: the Liège waffle, the Brussels waffle and the Belgian galettes.
In the heart of Europe, Milcamps commercializes its waffles on the 5 continents in retail and foodservice. Different ranges of products are developed, from standard recipes to more elaborate ones, thus allowing to answer to any type of positioning and specificity of the market.

Without preservatives, the recipes are carefully elaborated to meet the highest requirements of the market. Milcamps proposes and develops tomorrow’s recipes while keeping the authenticity and the delicious taste of its Belgian recipes.
