Almost 30 years serving taste
and quality in the agri-food industry.
Materne Industries is the leading European specialist in wet fillings for the agri-food industry: biscuits, cakes, pastries, confectionaries, chocolates and cereals.
For many years we have exclusively devoted ourselves to creating recipes and producing fillings that meet the many requirements of our customers.
Today, we belong to the BEL Group, a world-renowned player.
Having inherited a long history of know-how, our company has also succeeded in advancing its methods and processes. We propose solutions to small and medium-sized businesses as well as to major industrial groups.
Our history is a guarantee of our passion and know-how.
Our adventure started in 1881, when the Confiturerie de la Thiérache
was set up in Boué, in the heart of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais-Picardie region’s orchards, whose apples we still transform today. At this point in time, tradition and quality were already part of our DNA.
In 1922, Edouard Materne, a visionary businessman, purchased the Confiturerie de la Thiérache and brought Materne into being. In a short space of time, the company became one of the five leading jam makers in France.
Materne became the leader in transformation of fruit when it joined the Danone group, acquiring two fruit canneries at the same time: the Lenzbourg and Lerebourg firms. Our industrial culture became a matter of course!
How can we ignore the creation of Pom'Potes, the very first gourd of stewed fruit launched by Materne? Today, this innovative product is a leader on its market and has profoundly changed the snacking habits of many schoolchildren!
This year witnessed an international deployment. Materne joined forces with Mont-Blanc dessert creams and the MOM Group was born, becoming the leader on the healthy snacks market in Europe and soon in the USA.
Materne Industries doubled its capacities for producing industrial fillings, becoming able to produce a large array of aqueous fillings adapted to the specific processes and technologies of each customer.
A new important stage in our development: Materne joined the French Group BEL to become the international leader in the healthy snacks market.
