Gimv appears to us as the right partner to achieve our ambitions, given the scale of its European network and its insight into the strategic challenges we face in our industry.

When ambition meets ambition
La Comtoise is positioned in the buoyant and resilient snacking and processed food segments and has been on a steady growth path for a number of years. With top-quality R&D capabilities and efficient production facilities, it develops tailor-made products totally adapted to its customers' requests, notably in terms of organoleptic properties, while meeting the highest standards of production processes.
La Comtoise fits well into the investment philosophy of our Connected Consumer platform, which has over the years frequently invested in the food sector in France and Europe.
Together, we build a leading company
The company doubled its production capacity and has the ambition to step up its growth with the development of new solutions, notably in cheese sauces where it will address a new clientele, particularly out-of-home catering. La Comtoise also intends to strengthen its international presence. Gimv will support the company through its extensive business network across Benelux, France and DACH countries.
