When it all began
Louis-Antoine Bonduelle partnered up with Louis Lesaffre-Roussel to found a juniper berry distiller, their first venture, which led to another distillery, a malt house, a sugar refinery and a pea canning business. “Bonduelle peas” was the very first campaign run, in 1926.

In 1947, models were designed for tin-plate printing. In July, Bonduelle branded cans were stocked on French supermarket shelves.
