The Loste House

An exceptional brand

From the outset, a lion’s head was chosen to embody the brand’s values; a logo that remains virtually unchanged to this day.
Giving a nod to the city of Lyon, the "king of beasts" primarily conveys the idea of strength.

MAISON LOSTE is the deli charcuterie brand exclusively for specialists, chosen by the consumer and offering a modern foodie treat backed up by tradition and innovation.

A family story

  • The great story behind Loste began in 1866 in the Monts du Lyonnais. 
    Pierre Loste, a pork butcher based in the commune of Saint-Symphorien-sur-Coise followed in the footsteps of his father, Jean-Baptiste. He was of course an excellent pork butcher, but above all, forward-thinking. Aged 40, in a region entirely devoted to artisan butchers, he was inspired to establish a maturing unit for curing sausages on an industrial scale. 
    Saint-Symphorien-Sur-Coise would become forever and for everyone "the origin of cured sausage".

    Le personnel historique de la Maison Loste (1866)
  • Loste joined Olida, a fast-growing company. It marked the dawn of a new era that revolutionised charcuterie. Loste’s excellent reputation for sausage making in Lyon was an ideal match for what Olida had to offer. This way, Loste could retain its identity and its name while being destined exclusively for independent butchers.

    Maison Loste : la fusion avec Olida (1928)
  • Olida, under the commercial management of Antoine d’Espous, bolstered Loste as a flagship brand for promotion.The brand was already a benchmark for flavour and set to be an upmarket essential for traditional trade. In the space of 3 years, 12,000 deli butchers put their faith in Loste products.

  • The brand was primed for its communications campaign. The range was reworked and structured to further develop the innovative products it is famous for now. The yearning to become known reached its peak in 1989 with the launch of Duc de Coise, the brand’s flagship, dedicated to those "passionate about sausages".

  • With around 100 products, Loste went back to being an independent brand, embodying a kind of family tradition, overseen as ever by Antoine d’Espous.
