Groupe Natimpact has acquired Bovetti Chocolats

Groupe Natimpact has acquired SAS Bovetti Chocolats.

Groupe Natimpact’s purpose is to combine independent SMEs in the organic food industry. Its mission is to contribute to the development of a demanding organic sector while having a positive environmental and social impact. Natimpact consists of two companies: Naturgie, the French leader in organic jam, and now Bovetti.

Founded in 1994 by Valter Bovetti, Bovetti is specialized in the production of high quality and organic creative chocolate products. The company markets its products (mainly bars and spreads) in organic stores and gourmet shops. Located in Terrasson-Lavilledieu, in Dordogne, Bovetti has its own museum and factory outlet. Employing 24 permanent staff, the company generated sales of around US$5.5 million in 2019.

Oaklins’ team in France assisted Groupe Natimpact in the financing and acquisition of Bovetti Chocolats.

Parties
“One year after the creation of Natimpact, we are delighted with this second acquisition. We have been impressed by Bovetti’s know-how as well as the quality of its products and infrastructure. Valter Bovetti’s values are fully in line with Natimpact’s philosophy and we are happy to continue this adventure by his side. We would like to thank the Oaklins team, who once again, accompanied us on this journey. The wellness and nutrition team has once again proven its professionalism and its sector expertise.”
