Our history

FRAIS DEVANT is a young, friendly brand of French charcuterie created in 2007 by Mathieu Dorfmann, a passionate lover of good products. FRAIS DEVANT is a brand that creates taste and memories. The products in the range come from meats that have been rigorously selected to ensure a high quality offering.

A young and modern brand

FRAIS DEVANT was created with the ambition of telling pretty stories about charcuterie through its products. The name FRAIS DEVANT is a nod to the traditional restaurant phrase “CHAUD DEVANT”!
Its core business is the selection, production and slicing of high-quality fresh conventional and organic charcuterie products, sold in supermarkets and hypermarkets.
Over the years, FRAIS DEVANT has established itself as a leading brand of charcuterie products in the fresh produce section.
Now with a fresh new look, FRAIS DEVANT is a brand with a modern, bold approach.

A gourmet and passionate creator

FRAIS DEVANT was created in 2007 by Mathieu Dorfmann, a passionate designer and lover of good food. More than 15 years ago, while talking to friends, he noticed that certain charcuterie products were little used or little known. He came up with the idea of producing quality products with a clear origin, based around a strong range that would “freshen up” the shelves of our supermarkets.
