    Overview

    Dutch Bakery, a leading bakery group specialised in home bake-off bread and snack products, is headquartered in Tilburg and operates six bakeries across the Netherlands.

    Dutch Bakery offers a leading, innovative and comprehensive assortment, which is produced sustainably and with natural ingredients. The bake-off market for bread and snack products is an attractive and growing market, with significant barriers to entry and increasing penetration of high-quality modified atmosphere packaging products (which extend the shelf life of fresh food products).

    Highlights

    • We are investing to drive the company’s international growth strategy in the fragmented European private label market for bake-off products, whilst supporting Dutch Bakery in the continued investments in its home markets.
    • The business differentiates itself through the breadth of its product offering, which enables retailers to develop a structurally attractive home bake-off category.
    • Key market drivers include premiumisation, growth in e-commerce and new home eating moments due to increased time spent at home.
    • Dutch Bakery has completed its first add-on under 3i ownership
    "3i has extensive experience in the private label market through its investments in Royal Sanders and Refresco and a proven track record of growing companies internationally, both of which will be of great benefit to us. We look forward to working with them to build on our success to date and create a leading European player in the bake-off market." Raoul Vorage, CEO, Dutch Bakery
