French bakery group Jacquet-Brossard is targeting the US market as part of a strategy to double international sales in the next five to ten years.
A spokesperson said product testing had just begun in the US but declined to comment further.
Jacquet-Brossard exports products to 35 countries from sites in France and Belgium.
A key market for the company, owned by French co-op Limagrain, is Brazil, where it launched products imported from France earlier this year.
Last November, Jacquet-Brossard started building a factory in southern Brazil and the site is set to being production next summer.
Jacquet-Brossard is looking to generate annual sales of EUR20m in Brazil over the next three to five years.
