leads the way!

Paul Prédault became the first brand in its sector to invest in TV advertising for a product sliced and sold over the counter: Le Foué from 1983, and Le Mousson from 1988. Our slogans left a lasting impression: "No other ham makes you feel this way", "You can’t invest taste", "True charcuterie ham" for Le Foué, and "The taste that changes everything" for Le Mousson.
