Europe Division

« The European zone recorded an impressive growth of 9.5% compared to the previous business year. »

Europe Division

This sustained growth is mainly due to the significant development of the Catering activity in France (+ 11%), and the gain in market share in the Inflight sector, particularly in Spain, Benelux and the United Kingdom.

The Group’s Rail business in Europe has shown itself to be in good health with rising sales and good market share in Portugal.

Regarding Newrest Restauration, 2017/18 saw a continuation of the strong growth in sales that started last year, validating the Group’s credibility in the French Catering market.

In terms of Inflight catering, following the dramatic fire at CDG airport in July 2017, the France division opened a latest-generation unit of 7,500m2 in February 2018, in record time, and was therefore able to resume services to its Parisian customers from the platform. All this suggests that 2019 will be a promising year.
