Geldelis (in Torcé; 60 employees) manufactures fresh and frozen delicatessen products, including quiches, pies, sweets and other dough-based preparations, for distribution to chain stores such as Carrefour, Picard, Lidl, restaurant & catering and home shopping brands.
With an annual growth rate of between 20% and 30%, the company is expanding its industrial premises by 2,000m², where it will house a fourth production line, which will enable it to increase its production capacity by 30%. This investment will provide about 20 jobs.
This year, Geldelis will bring 2,600 tonnes of finished products to market through 200 references. The company sells its fresh products in France and frozen products in more distant countries. 15% of its business is exported, particularly to Europe, China, the USA, Russia and Israel. The objective is to reach 30%.
