FRANCE: LDC acquires sandwich maker

French poultry and processed meat group LDC has bought sandwich maker Entracte from catering company Groupe Valentin Traiteur.

French poultry and processed meat group LDC has bought sandwich maker Entracte from catering company Groupe Valentin Traiteur.


Entracte, France’s fourth-largest sandwich maker, produces around 27m sandwiches each year with an estimated turnover of around EUR26m (US$33.7m).


“Entracte is an attractive proposition with a strong presence in the retail sector,” a spokesperson for LDC told just-food today (21 January).


Approximately 85% of Entracte’s sales come from retail customers.


The company owns a number of well-known brands, including Relais H and Wagon Lits, and operates one Paris-based manufacturing facility.


LDC’s spokesperson said the integration of Entracte’s activities will “significantly strengthen” its position in the pre-made sandwich sector.


Financial details of the deal were not disclosed and the spokesperson refused to be drawn on the purchase price.
