The brand Dijonnaise of the gingerbread Philbée was created by Mr. Charles Philbée in 1895. For a long time they were the leaders for this product on the market. While their competitors had between 25 and 50 employees, Philbée had 100. Anecdotally, this brand rose "in the front line" during the Great War, gingerbread being the "dessert" given to the Poilus.
