Strategy

Mission

Floridienne is a diversified holding company active in niche markets articulated around three spheres of competences – Chemistry, Fency Food, and Life Sciences – and in which we differentiate ourselves through creativity and innovation.

We position ourselves as the preferred partner of multinationals in sectors that are too small or somewhere “out of the box” for them to invest directly but where they search credible and strong business partners. Our stock listing is therefore a real added value.

Unlike financial holdings, we are majority owners of almost all our participations, and have a long term horizon on our investments. By such, we assume the responsibility of the management of our subsidiaries, that is shared in a decentralized way with motivated local teams, acting under the supervision of our Division Managing Directors. At holding level, besides the strategic guidelines, we provide our subsidiaries with our financial, legal and external growth expertise, and look for their optimal financing.

We strongly believe that the key drivers for long term growth is to invest in products that offer a real added value to the society and to the environment, therefore we focus our investments on these sectors.

Investment strategy

We invest in companies of relatively small sizes but that have a strong position in their sectors, and where we identify clear growth opportunities, being organic or buy-and-build.

We try to bring these companies to levels where they become best-of-class players and the natural partner for multinationals in their respective sectors.
