MILAN, October 27, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Berlin Packaging, the World’s Largest Hybrid Packaging Supplier®, today announced the signing of a firm commitment with OI France SAS under which Berlin Packaging France SAS will acquire the Le Parfait business and brands.
Founded in Reims, France, in the early 1930s, Le Parfait was known for its iconic glass jars and lids manufactured by OI France SAS and its subsidiaries. The brand is popular in France, born from the tradition of homemade preserves, jams, honey and terrines, delicious and sustainable. Assembled with orange rubber seals, the jars are easily identifiable for consumers and ideal for preserving food while reducing waste. The glass jars and lids are strong, reusable and recyclable, and the seals are made from natural and recycled rubber, which helps reduce the impact on the environment.
“The acquisition of the Le Parfait brand would strengthen our leadership in the glass packaging industry and make Berlin Packaging the leading and trusted partner for high-quality glass packaging, not only in the business-to-business (B2B ) but also in the business-to-consumer (B2C) market, ”said Paul Recrosio, PDG de Berlin Packaging EMEA.
“The Le Parfait brand is synonymous with sustainability and quality, two essential elements of our business. This acquisition would allow us to continue to develop our footprint in L’Europe , while developing our sustainable packaging solutions around the world, ”said Bill Hayes, Global CEO and President of Berlin Packaging.
Le Parfait glass jars and lids are manufactured in the factories of Puy-Guillaume, France and Seville, Spain. OI France and its subsidiaries would continue to manufacture Le Parfait glass jars and lids under a long-term supply agreement with Berlin Packaging France, ensuring the continuity of supply of this product.
This would be Berlin Packaging’s 17th acquisition in EMEA since 2016 and the 7th acquisition in EMEA in 2021.
The acquisition is subject to the usual closing conditions and subject to consultation with the works council. Berlin Packaging expects the acquisition to be finalized towards the end of the year.
