Markets Covered:



For FaerchPlast a leading food packaging group owned by Advent International we evaluated the potential acquisition of the food packaging businesses of CGL Pack in France.


Faerchplast is a world leader in cPET packaging for ready meals and a major player in PET food to go packaging and technologies. The business was considering the acquisition of CGL Pack, a market leader in PET based food packaging in France for use in Food-to-Go and Meat packaging. We were asked to evaluate the potential for CGL and Faerch to grow in these market segments within France.

We undertook a market assessment, market sizing and market share evaluation of packaging formats and packaging manufacturers in Food-to-Go and Meat segments through our proprietary store based audit methodology and identified market shares of the target in each segment based on audit of circa 10,000 facings across the two categories.

We interviewed major packaging buyers across the major market segments and developed a detailed understanding of the prospects for the target.
