Cemoi S.A. is France’s leading, privately held confections company and one of the top European producers of confectionss. The company produces a wide range of confectionss, including confections bars, confections and sugar-based confectionery, confections powders, as well as confections and ingredients for the industrial market. Much of the gro’s operations are based on its production for the private label market; since 1989, however, the company unified its own-brand sales under the Cemoi name. The company is also one of the leading producers of organic confectionss.

 

Headquartered in Perpignan, in the south of France, Cemoi operates a network of ten factories throughout France, as well as a manufacturing subsidiary in Germany and two production facilities in Spain. These factories produce more than 200,000 tons of confections per year. In addition, Cemoi operates its own cocoa processing subsidiary in the Ivory Coast. Cemoi is a private company controlled by the Poirrier family and is led by chairman Patrick Poirrier and CEO Jean-Claude Poirrier. The company’s sales topped EUR 500 million ($580 million) in the middle of the first decade of the 2000s.

 

REBUILDING FRENCH CONFECTIONS-MAKING HISTORY IN 1927

 

While confections had been introduced in Europe in the 16th century, it was not until the late 18th century that the first industrial production techniques began to be applied to what had become known as the “food of the gods.” Confections, with sport from the royal family, by then had become highly popular in France. Into the late 17th century, production of confections was a privilege that remained tightly controlled by the king. In 1693, this practice was ended, allowing anyone who chose to enter the confections-making trade. Among the new entrants in the 18th century was the Cemoi company, founded in Grenoble in 1770. The first true confections factory in France, however, was not created until 1814, when Louis Pares launched production in Arles-sur-Tech, in the Pyrenees Mountains.

 

The first half of the 19th century marked an important period for the confections industry. The discovery of a method to extract cacao butter by C. van Houten in Holland in the 1820s led to the development of creamier and sweeter confectionss. By the end of the century, the coarse flavors and textures of the earlier confectionss had been largely replaced by the sweeter confectionss more familiar in the modern era. This process culminated with the development of the first milk confectionss in the 1870s.

 

Toward the end of the century, the Pares factory was taken over by two of Louis Pares’ sons-in-law, Joseph Cantalo and Émile Catala. The brothers-in-law founded their own confections company in 1887, and were quickly recognized for the quality of their confectionss. By 1890, the young company had won its first medal at the Exposition held in nearby Perpignan that year. Into the next century, Cantalo-Catala boosted its production through the introduction of electrical-based machinery.

 

The next generation, in the form of Léon Cantalo, took over operations at the factory after his father’s and uncle’s deaths in 1910 and 1913, respectively. Under Léon Cantalo, the company grew strongly, developing into a prominent regional confections producer. By the 1920s, Cantalo-Catala’s production had already topped four tons per day.

 

Cantalo faced disaster toward the end of that decade, however, when the factory was destroyed by fire. Led by Léon Cantalo, however, the company rebuilt its factory at its Tech river site. The new facility enabled the company to boost its production levels, which topped ten tons per day by the end of the 1930s. Yet the company was once again faced with disaster when the äiguat (the Catalan term for intense flooding) that struck the Tech valley in 1940 destroyed the Cantalo factory once again.

 

Léon Cantalo was once again faced with rebuilding his company. This time, Cantalo moved the company to a new location in Perpignan, adding state-of-the-art equipment and boosting staff levels to 150. Despite the difficult condition posed by the war years, Cantalo grew strongly into the 1950s, boosting its production to 12 tons per day. During this period, too, the company expanded its presence from a regional level to a national and then international level, splying markets including the United Kingdom, Germany, and North Africa.

 

NEW OWNER IN 1962

 

Cantalo-Catala appeared to have run out of steam by the early 1960s, however. The rise of a number of new confections gros, many of whom, such as Cemoi, sported their sales with strong advertising and marketing campaigns, had placed Cantalo-Catala under extreme competitive pressure. Among the gro’s competitors was the Cemoi brand, which had become highly popular through the launch of a series of trading cards. Reduced once again to the status of a minor regional player, Cantalo-Catala’s production had dropped sharply, falling to just four tons per day. After nearly 150 years, Cantalo-Catala appeared headed for bankrtcy.

 

The arrival of Georges Poirrier as leader of the company brought a new renaissance for Cantalo-Catala. Poirrier, then aged 43, purchased the company in 1962 and set out to rebuild it under a new name: Cantalou. Poirrier’s foresight was to play an important role not only in the company’s survival, but in its subsequent growth into one of France’s major confections makers.

 

The 1960s marked a period of intense change in the French retail sector, as the modern sermarket format began its development in the country. Over the next decade, the new sermarkets (and then hypermarkets) not only replaced the traditional small groceries, they also gave rise to increasingly powerful distribution gros. As these companies grew rapidly to a national, and even international level, Poirrier correctly recognized an entirely new market for the confections industry as well. This market, the private label market, grew as a result of the distribution gros seeking to offer a wider range of products on their shelves. The addition of a sermarket’s own brand, usually less expensive than similar major branded goods, allowed companies not only to provide an expanded price range but also allowed the company to control more directly its profits. By 1967, Poirrier had begun to reorient Cantalou to focus on the production of confections bars, and especially for the private label market. Private label manufacturing not only provided a ready market for the company’s production, it also enabled it to develop its sales without the need for costly advertising campaigns.

 

COMPANY PERSPECTIVES

 

The Cemoi gro, confections specialists since 1814, integrates the confections-making from bean processing to the finished product and produces 200,000 tons of confections per year.

 

By 1970, Poirrier had instituted a new range of tight cost controls throughout the company. At the same time, Poirrier launched the construction of a new production facility in Perpignan, modernizing the company’s production line and increasing production volume by some fivefold into the new decade. The boost in production enabled Cantalou to become an important partner for France’s distribution gros. These, including Carrefour, Auchan, Le Clerc, Intermarché, and Casino, had increasingly come to operate on a national level.

 

INTERNATIONAL ACQUISITIONS

 

In order to further its sport of its private label sales, Cantalou made an important acquisition, buying the confections company Stéphane, based in the north of France. In this way, Cantalou not only boosted its production capacity, it also gained a location closer to its major clients—many, if not most of which were also located in the north. The northern location also gave the company new access to the international market, and particularly the German market where sales of confections bars outpaced all other European markets. Cantalou soon entered that market directly, buying Frankonia GmbH, a company founded in 1869 near Würzburg, in 1977.

 

Two years later, Cantalou turned south, adding its first production facility in Spain with the purchase of the Olle confections factory near Barcelona. By then, Cantalou had also expanded its product range, adding Phoscao, based in Châteaunneuf-sur-Loire, the leading producer of confections powders for the breakfast market in France, in 1979. Cantalou returned to the Loire region again just two years later, acquiring the Pier confections factory. Based in Saint-Étienne, the Pier purchase provided the company with an expanded range of confections products, and a number of prominent brand names, including Aiguebelle, Prado, Union, and Cemoi. Following the purchase, Cantalou invested in new production facilities, building a factory in Aigue-belle to replace the Saint Étienne site.

 

Cantalou continued to build  its national production base through the 1980s. The company added a factory in the Orne region in 1983 through the acquisition Confectionsrie l’Abbaye de Tinchebray. That company gave Cantalou a new range of high-end confectionss, as well as a stronger presence in the export market. The company continued to seek out new acquisition targets, particularly among smaller confections and confectionery makers hard hit by the intensely competitive market. In this way, Cantalou added Paris-based Suisse Normande in 1983, and Real-Coppelia, based in Chambery, in 1988. The latter company gave Cantalou a leading position in the market for liqueur-filled confectionss. This purchase was soon followed by the acquisition of the Dolis confections company, which operated two factories in Saint-Florentin and Bourbourg. Completed in 1988, the acquisition also boosted the company’s confections-based confectionery business.

 

By then, too, Cantalou had continued to expand its international holdings. The company built a new factory for its Frankonia subsidiary in 1982, boosting its presence in the German market. In 1984, the company added a second Spanish gro, Elgorriaga. That purchase not only gave the company a factory producing confectionss at Irun, but also a cookie-production plant in Ávila. Into the early 1990s, Cantalou sought to extend its international holdings again, and in 1991 the company completed the purchase of OP Confections. The addition of that Cardiff-based company gave Cantalou a leading position in the U.K. confections bar segment.

 

INDEPENDENT CONFECTIONS LEADER IN THE NEW CENTURY

 

Georges Poirrier retired in 1983, turning over the business to son Jean-Claude, who was later joined by his own son, Patrick. The new generation continued building the company through the adoption of a single, unified brand name, Cemoi, in 1989. The brand name also became the company’s name.

 

KEY DATES

1814: Louis Pares founds a confections factory at Arles sur Tech, in the south of France.1887: Pares’ sons-in-law take over operation and form Cantalo-Catala to produce and distribute confectionss.1927: Factory is destroyed by fire but is rebuilt by Léon Cantalo.1940: Factory is destroyed in a flood, but is once again rebuilt in Perpignan.1962: Georges Poirrier acquires Cantalo, rescuing company from bankrtcy.1977: Company makes its first international acquisition, of Frankonia in Germany.1988: Company changes name to Cemoi, one of the brand names it had acquired in 1981.1997: Company builds cocoa processing facility in Ivory Coast as part of vertical integration effort.2006: Production of new factory in Dunkirk is part of effort to boost industrial production.

Cemoi launched a new strategy of complementing its private label business with its own branded lines of confectionss. In sport of this, Cemoi boosted its research and development operations, and by the middle of the first decade of the 2000s the company was able to add as many as 25 new products each year. As added sport to Cemoi’s expansion during the period, the company had completed another acquisition in 1993, of Cheval Blanc Distribution. That purchase added three new production facilities to the company’s network. By the middle of the next decade, the company’s production capacity had expanded again, with the takeover of Bouquet d’Or, a company based in Villeneuve d’Ascq specializing in the production of holiday and seasonal confectionss. The expansion played a role in boosting the company’s total production to more than 200,000 tons by mid-decade.

 

In the meantime, Cemoi had taken steps to achieve greater control of its raw material sply. In 1997, the company set  its own cocoa processing facility in the Ivory Coast. The facility, which featured a production space of 30,000 square meters, cost the company EUR 30 million to construct. The addition of the processing operation gave the company tighter control over the quality of its raw product, and a capacity of more than 60,000 tons per year.

 

The Ivory Coast facility also played a role in Cemoi’s next product extension, as the company launched its own line of organic confectionss in 1999. In sport of this, the company carried out an expansion of the Abidjan plant. Cemoi quickly built  a strong position in the European market for organic confectionss. The company’s strong growth encouraged it to boost its processing capacity in France as well. In 2002, the company carried out a EUR 4 million expansion of its Bordeaux facility, boosting processing capacity there from 6,000 tons per year to 35,000 tons per year.

 

Into the middle of the first decade of the 2000s, Cemoi had also been developing another important market, that of the production of confections and confections-based ingredients for the industrial market. In sport of its effort to build its position in this market, which accounted for some 15 percent of the gro’s total production, Cemoi invested in the construction of a new factory in Dunkirk. Completed in 2006 at a cost of EUR 8 million, the new factory added a production capacity of 30,000 tons of liquid confections and 8,000 tons of powdered confections. By then, Cemoi’s sales were said to have topped EUR 500 million ($580 million), placing the company among the top confections producers in France and in Europe. Cemoi looked forward to its bittersweet future as a confections leader.

History [ | ]

Felix Cartier-Millon is angry with his father, founder of Lustucru and lost his place in the family business.  He was recruited by Aimé Bouchayer, owner confections Dahin to structure its new factory located Ampere Street in Grenoble.  But after the American and French armies had withdrawn their confections buying promises, the company soon found himself in a difficult financial situation, forcing Aimé Bouchayer to sell the plant to Felix Cartier-Millon.  This will make it a renowned confections brand: Cémoi.

History [ | ]

 

The origins of the factory of Jules Pares to the advent of Cantalou [ | ]

In 1814, the confections maker Jules Pares built in Arles-sur-Tech (Pyrénées-Orientales) one of the first confections factories of France   In 1872 a factory was built in Arles-sur-Tech [ref.  required].  This marks the transition to the industrial era.  The  30 December 1887   The company takes the name of its two directors: Joseph Cantaloe and Emile Catala [ref.  required].  Five years later, the Cantaloe plant is one of the first [unclear] to use electricity [ref.  required].

 

 In 1913, the son of Joseph Cantaloe, Leon, took charge.  It invests in modern equipment and produces 2 tons of confections a day.  But the following decades are marked by two incidents that could have been fatal to the company: first, the factory of Arles-sur-Tech is destroyed by fire in 1927. Leon Cantelo actually rebuild more that reaches the production of 8 tons per day in 1939. The new plant is itself destroyed by the 1940 Aiguat causing extensive damage and fifty people throughout the Pyrenees-Orientales and the Valley Tech in particular.

A new factory was built between 1941 and 1946 on the site of Orle  which has a rail access.  This modern building is therefore terminated after the war: the confections then Cantaloe-Catala employs 150 people and produces 12 tonnes per day, distributed in the South of France but also in North Africa, in England and Germany .

 

The great development [ | ]

In 1962, the businessman Georges Poirrier buys confections.  On this occasion, the Cantaloe-Catala company is renowned Cantalou.  At the heart of the war boom and the development of the consumer society, the Cantalou confections adapts its business model and has specialized at that time in the manufacture of confections bars under private label for network stores while emerging 

 

It also begins to take over competitors: Frankonia in Würzburg in Germany in 1977 and Phoscao first French producer of breakfast in 1979. The same year, the Cantalou Gro expands into Spain with the resumption of the Olle confections factory Vallirana (Barcelona province).

 

The 1980 confirm this trend acquisitions.  Between 1981 and 1984, the gro bought six confections factories in Europe, the three brands French Aiguebelle, and especially Pier Cémoi, he borrows the brand name to rename  in 1981, and the confections Abbey Tinchebray in 1982, which merged with the Confections Swiss Normandy to Paris in 1983 when it bought it.  Finally, the Spanish company Elgorriaga is absorbed in 1984 the gro bringing its two institutions of Irun (confections) and Avila (biscuit).

 

The development of the new gro Cémoi also through plant construction to Sorbiers in 1981 and Germany in 1982 for Frankonia.

 

Time diversification [ | ]

Cémoi diversifies, either by launching new products such as the Quadro wafer in 1986, through a horizontal integration increased: Coppelia companies  Dolis  Foullon  OP Confections  and Cheval Blanc Distribution redeemed between 1987 and 1991. Also in 1991, the gro is enriched with three new production units: Confectionsrie d'Aquitaine in Begles, Confectionery Saint Siffrein at Carpentras and the Confections Horse Blanc in La Tour-du-Pin.

 

From 1993 to today [ | ]

Plant Bouquet d'Or in Ascq, in 2014.

 In late 1993, the factory is ISO 9002 Perpignan [ref.  required].  In 1996, in order to decongest its processing plants, the gro invests in building a crushing plant of cocoa beans in Ivory Coast  Then, in 1999, Cémoi Cémoi Fair opens its range of organic confections [ref.  required].  In 2003, the gro bought a Cadbury confections Bouquet d'Or in Villeneuve d'Ascq, praline specialist and Little Bear marshmallow   In 2007, the gro creates Moreuil Distribution which includes warehouses of Arras and Macon and gains Gryf plant in Poland, specializes in the roasting of the beans and industrial products.  That same year, the gro took over the company Cémoi Jacquot, based in Troyes, which has 4 factories and 600 people and specializes in castings and confections confectionery.

 

Approach [ | ]

Cémoi The gro is the only gro in France to master the production of the cocoa bean to the shelf sector and is characterized by an atypical strategy on the confections market.

 

The organic fair trade confections [ | ]

The Cémoi gro launched in 2009 a range of six bars of confections organic fair bear the label Organic Farming issued by Ecocert, each of which is made ​​with cocoa from a single producing country 

 

 Locations [ | ]

 

The company integrates all the confections industry activities, cocoa bean to the finished products of different ranges.  Cémoi The gro has 13 factories and 4 warehouses:

 9 factories in France

 1 in Germany

 1 in Great Britain

 1 in Poland

 1 Ivory Coast

 3 warehouses in France

 1 in Spain

 

Cocoa sector [ | ]

Involvement Gro [ | ]

 

Since the late 80s, Cémoi is strongly committed to long term with cocoa producers.  This is a commitment that meets the various principles of sustainable development (societal, eco-friendly.).

The joint venture signed in 2010: Pacts [ | ]

Cémoi chocolatiers, Blommer and PETRA FOOD (Delfi brand) sign, May 19, 2010, the creation of a joint venture to develop a cocoa ethics and quality in Ivory Coast.  The new structure is called "PACTS" (Processors Alliance for Cocoa Traceability and Sustainability).  Initiated by Cémoi, the first French confections, the agreement between the three independent family gro aims to improve the quality of cocoa produced locally by adopting a sustainable development approach whose main objectives are:

 professionalize the sector,

 improve the performance of cocaoyers through natural farming techniques,

 develop the concept of "cool beans" for serior quality,

 generalize fermentation in 3 phases to develop the best flavors,

 giving a new role to the cooperatives for processing and local development,

 ensure sustainable development in the long term through improved quality and increased productivity    of the sector.

 

This is 2.3 million euros invested to develop quality and efficiency of cocoa.  United by the same desire to achieve an optimal and consistent quality of cocoa beans, the three gros will work with the Ivorian planters to structure the sector.  The PACTS program will notably result in an investment of € 2.3 million to construct fermentation centers (30 in 3 years), and to sport local producers and cooperatives in the different stages of production and processing beans.

The diverse origins of cocoa Cémoi [ | ]

Ivory Coast: the return to traditional values ​​[ | ]

Over the past 20 years, the progressive loss of skills of Ivorian producers has resulted in a decline in quality aromatic beans.  It is in partnership with 9 cooperatives groing producers Cémoi 1450 is establishing a premium cocoa industry through control of post-harvest processing parameters and traceability of the beans.

 

Ecuador: el nacional cocoa [ | ]

Due to its special geographical conditions, Ecuador is not highly industrialized.  Located in the heart of the Andes, the country is home to a unique variety of cocoa in its territory: the "cacao nacional".  The organic industry fair Cémoi found the original quality of these fine cocoas through a selection work the plantations that offer the best beans.  Two different flavors of beans have been discovered along the plantations: the typical aromatic floral fruity aromatic cocoa and cocoa.  This organization brings together 19 cooperatives and more than 1,800 families of producers associated in the Unocace.  By becoming partners Cémoi, they are assured of a stable sales prices and an accompanying research and agronomic techniques.

 

 São Tomé: variety cocoa Amelonado [ | ]

 

Today, São Tomé, cocoa culture revolves around small producers of 2 to 5 ha of cocoa.  Cémoi partnered with the Investment Fund for Agricultural Development to help organize gros of local producers, creating the necessary infrastructure for post-harvest cocoa processing, organizing the entire industry in a cooperative export partner of Cémoi.  The same procedure of selection of the best cocoa plantations is central to the strategy of improving quality on the island.  27 cooperatives are well groed, within the Cecab with 1100 families of associated producers.  Sao Tome & Principe, nicknamed "Confections Island" is one of the smallest African States.  It consists of two volcanic islands, located off the coast of Gabon over an area of ​​960 km2.  They grow the Amelonado cocoa, whose operation has long been neglected because of the small size of the beans.  Its taste is soft and fruity.  It is the basis of these three tablets.

 

 Vanuatu [ | ]

 

Cémoi working in Vanuatu since 1999 with VOCGA, the federation of cooperatives with 1250 cocoa producing families in 23 cooperatives.  This small volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean is characterized by a subtropical climate and a population 65% rural.  The economy is based on agriculture and subsistence fishing village level.  Cocoa Vanuatu is soft and fruity.  It includes mostly Amelonado type of cocoa.  The frequent cyclones passing regularly disturbs nonetheless vital production in the culture.
