France-based poultry major LDC is in talks to buy Les Délices de Saint Léonard from the Agromousquetaires Group.
Located in Theix in north-western France, the Les Délices de Saint Léonard factory produces fresh and frozen pizzas, pancakes, quiches and pies, according to a filing from LDC.
Since 2002, it has also manufactured “club and maxi format” sandwiches, fresh snacks and baguettes. It has a turnover of just under €50m ($52.6m) and employs 265 people, LDC said.
Les Délices de Saint Léonard’s products are marketed under the brands Fiorini, Monique Ranou, Claude Léger and Top Budget.
“Discussions with a view to its acquisition by the LDC Group are underway but there is currently nothing to define the outcome,” the poultry group added.
“Any significant information in this file, likely to be of interest to its shareholders and more generally to all investors, will be brought to the attention of the market, in accordance with regulations, by means of a press release.”
