It has been a year since Conserve Italia, a group of Italian co-operatives, sold France-based packaged fruit supplier St Mamet to French private-equity firm Florac. Matthieu Lambeaux, the former Findus executive, had joined Florac in May 2015 to help the family-owned Florac buy branded food companies in France and became the CEO of St Mamet after the takeover. John Shepherd met Lambeaux at the SIAL trade show last month to discuss his plans to grow the business.
