Abstract | Full Text

This paper focuses on the history and production of the Adolf Jebavý factory – one of the famous family meat industry companies in Brno in the first half of the 20th Century. From the time of the first owner, Adolf Jebavý (1872-1938), and later his equally significant son, also named Adolf (1903-after 1948?), the company has grown into an important and famous Brno meat products producer and exporter. This company produced mostly canned meat, various kinds of sausages, patés and other foods, with a brand mark “Delica”. These products were also very popular in foreign countries (as well as with the Czech minority overseas). The company had several shops in Brno at the Křenová street, on the Náměstí Svobody square, in Královo Pole, but also in other cities, for example in Luhačovice. This paper is based on extensive company archive funds from the Brno Moravian Land Archives, where we can find information about company production, sales management, export and other important facts about this producer, such as private correspondence, war damages evidence and also evidence on the occasion of the political and administrative changes in the government in 1948. The topic was also put into larger context, as this study also briefly focuses on the history of butchers as well as on the history of companies and production in the first half of the 20th Century in Czech lands.
