“Mostaardfabriek Oud Huis Ferdinand Tierenteyn” has been for many years, even for ages, a producer of fine and spicy mustards.  The factory was founded in Ghent (Belgium) and is today still located over there.  The concept of the production is made in the traditional way but with modern mustard mills allowing the making of a high quality product that meets the strongest norms of food safety. 

Nowadays our mustards are still produced following the rules of Ferdinand, founder of the house Ferdinand Tierenteyn in 1818.  The flavour and taste of our mustards are determined by a precise selection and mixture of mustard seeds, without any addition of artificial flavourings.

In principle, products are only made on demand.  Our stocks are therefore relatively small: they only cover a short period and do serve as a service-tool to respond to smaller orders or emergency-orders.  Our ‘production on demand’ combined with a ‘service-stock’ guarantees our clients a fresh product with an adequate service-flexibility.

Our clientele is very diverse, from high-class top-restaurants over to specialised suppliers for hotel, restaurants and catering industry and quality supermarkets.  Besides this, a large spectrum of companies within the food industry (mayonnaise and salad dressings, …) use our mustards. Our clientele is mainly located nearby Ghent, our home town, and in the province of East-Flanders, but our products have been sold for many years from the Belgian coast up to the eastern province of Limburg, from Flanders to Walloon, and more and more in the Netherlands.

The company, founded at the beginning of the 19th century, is still independent.  It is not absorbed in a big concern and has opted for staying small and for artisanal production techniques

As already said, Ferdinand Tierenteyn bvba produces its mustards as Ferdinand did before: with the same recipes, with the same attention for raw materials and products, with the same attention for consumer and client.
