This Bavarian mustard and delikatessen company was founded in 1845 in the heart of Munich, Bavaria. Founder Johann Develey is credited with the invention of the sweet Bavarian mustard, which is still a staple of Bavarian cuisine today, especially as the companion to the famous Weisswurst and Weissbier. Develey soon became an official supplier to the Bavarian Royal Court, and over the next century the company developed into one of the leaders in the German condiment market. In 1992, the company acquired a mustard company based in Bautzen near Dresden in Saxony. This city prides itself on a 1,000 year history of producing the distinct Bautzener mustard.
