Indeed, if Aryzta is one of the leaders of its sector in Europe, it also has to face an important competition from some other companies.

Finsbury Food Group Plc

First of all, there is of course the competition from Finsbury Food Group Plc, which is a UK-based manufacturer of bakery products. This company specialises in the production of cakes, breads and bakery-snack products for retailers and the catering trade. The company's main areas of business include the UK bakery business, the overseas business and the group business.

The major partners of Aryzta

Knowing the competition of the Aryzta Group is of course important to carry out your analysis of this value, but you must also know the main partnerships that have allowed it to become the company that we know today.


 It is worth noting that the Aryzta group was created on the basis of a merger. In 2008, Hiestand was taken over by IAWS and more than two thirds of the capital of this company was controlled by the Irish group. The Aryzta Group will now have 8,000 employees. Thanks to this operation, the Aryzta Group has become the world leader in industrial bakery and has generated a turnover of more than 3.8 billion Swiss francs in more than 15 different countries. The IAWS management, which at the time held all the key positions in the new company, did not speak of a takeover. However, IAWS had already acquired a 22% stake in Hiestand in 2003 and subsequently increased its share in the group to 32% in 2005.


More recently, in 2018, Aryzta's French subsidiary began a strategic shift for its sales force to enter the digital era, which led to the implementation of a new partnership. Indeed, the 200 sales representatives and 80 telemarketers of this subsidiary were still working on an exhaustive paper catalogue published twice a year and on thematic brochures and digital supports that circulated via intranet or email. As part of the digital change process, the company partnered with Salesforce to use its Salesapp sales software to consolidate marketing and sales tools in a single location that also provides a complete toolbox for the sales force The company was thus able to become autonomous on this application and was able to fully customize it from the tree structure to the contents.
