History of unleavened bread

The origin of unleavened bread dates back to the time of the Hebrews who, slaves in Egypt, crossed the Red Sea while followed by Pharaon's army and left Egypt in such haste they could not wait for their bread dough to rise. .This is unleavened bread : "un" means  "without" and "leveaned "leaven / yeast"


René NEYMANN: a 150 year experience

The factory of unleavened bread René NEYMANN is the oldest one in France. Established in Wasselonne since 1870, it was created in 1850. Since the small artisanal factory of the beginning, 5 generations have followed, transmitting their continuing and more accomplished know-how. The baking of unleavened Matzo bread solely religious until 1930, starts then to conquer the retail trade and makes great strides in the early 1970’s, covering then the domestic and foreign market.
