Sale to private individuals and professionals

Successor of a company founded in 1806, the company is specialised in making and selling gingerbread.

The Lips company houses the museum of gingerbread and popular Alsatian art, a traditional gingerbread workshop and a boutique.


Using ancient moulds, it is a reference in Alsace in its profession and possesses rare know-how in traditional gingerbread-making. The company attempts to preserve ancestral traditions and methods of Gertwiller gingerbread-making, proposing products that have been of the same good quality and unaltered taste for around two centuries.


Its clientele consists of individuals (tourists and regional customers), companies and institutions.
