Oxstal, leader in food service in premium eco-friendly packaging distribution, has been acquired by ECF Group

The shareholders of Oxstal have sold the company to ECF Group.

Founded in 2004 by Réginald Uzzan and Matthieu Bonneaud, former managers of a major Parisian caterer, Oxstal is the French pioneer in tableware and premium eco-friendly packaging solutions for professionals in the food industry (catering, takeaway and delivery). Constantly looking for innovation and focused on finding the right materials (bamboo, sugar cane bagasse, cotton, kraft paper and wood), the company develops sustainable, recyclable and compostable food containers, with a pleasant design and optimized budget, for food service trays, cocktail and buffet receptions, meal trays and takeaway products.

ECF Group is a specialized international distribution group, a reference partner in the hospitality and care sectors since the creation of Maison Chomette in Paris in 1880. For 140 years, the group has developed commercial and private brands for professionals in the hotel, restaurant, tourism, catering, community, health and social sectors. ECF Group meets all equipment and supply requirements, including tableware, kitchen utensils and equipment, large equipment, furniture, textiles, hygiene, consumables and takeaway products. Thanks to its international network, structured in three regional hubs and its 20 logistic sites throughout the world, ECF Group benefits from a proximity presence and a capacity for rapid and custom-made intervention. Supported by Naxicap Partners since 2017, the group has more than 220,000 customers in 20 countries.

Oaklins’ team in France assisted Oxstal and its shareholders through this sale process to structure the most attractive transaction.

Parties
“It is a great satisfaction for the Oxstal team to join today the emblematic ECF Group with whom we share the same values. We are very happy to associate Oxstal with the Chomette brand and to create new synergies. This will also allow Oxstal to open its activity to the international market. We are ready to take up these new and ambitious challenges by pursuing our eco-commitment together. It promises to be an exciting adventure.”
