Our Story

The flavours trapped in Pipaillon's jars have seduced customers since 2014: the year Catherine Bodson, the founder, decided to change the course of her career at the age of 50. 

Inspired by the sweet memories of her aunt Yvonne's jams, she launched the workshop and started cooking delicious jams in copper pots, the old-fashioned way.

Her secret? The right balance between fruit, sugar and lemon: for example, with strawberries from the field (in May), ripe to perfection or oranges from Sicily (in winter) with a hint of rosemary.

At the time, Catherine was looking for a new challenge after a successful international career in the private and public sector.s  With Pipaillon, she found a way to combine her passion for precious pleasures in life with her respect for sustainable agriculture, and Pipaillon was born.

While Catherine started her great adventure alone, Julien Leclercq joined her six months later. He set foot in the workshop as a friend and customer, but quickly became an advisor and eventually joined the company. He now manages production in Pipaillon's workshop with a meticulous eye, ensuring unmatched quality output.

The striking duo works closely together on a daily basis - an unfailing harmony, thanks to their shared love for the best products and their keen sense of humour.

The Atelier

The secret of good jars?  

We source our organic ingredients from local farmers in Belgium, France and Sicily.

We have an amazing team to develop the unique Pipaillon savoir-faire, made of ancestral preservation techniques and modern tools.

The Pipaillon jars are 100% handmade and full of love.

Our techniques?

  • The sugar for the jams 
  • The salt for the capers, olives and lemon confit 
  • The vinegar for the chutneys 
  • The oil and the pasteurisation for the tapenades

So Good, so Chic!

 Classic Jams The Classic Jams are made for those who like it classy and classic, just pure and great taste.


Our chutneys are essentials, like the little black dress in a sauce.  They subtly balance fruits, onions, dried fruits, vinegar, sugar & spices for an unforgettable sweet & salty experience.

Try them in your sandwiches, with cheese, with meat & poultry or with veggie salads.


Simple pleasures, great tapas:

Our 3 tapenades are made of olives (green and black) and sundried tomatoes.  They combine olive oil and only the finest almonds and capers from Sicily, you’ll notice how mellow and crisp this favourite are.


Whole Sicilian lemons for a Moroccan classic!  Not only for the traditional couscous and tajines.  Also for roasted chicken: half a lemon inside, the other outside, then roast the poultry.
Rinced and diced, Yellow Submarine will accompany fish tartare or lentils and quinoa salads with a dash of olive oil.
