Information by region and business line

STEF France 

  • In France, the volumes handled by the chilled products and seafood businesses continue to be affected by the slowdown in food consumption. The frozen food business has also been affected, with a fall in volume and a drop in the fill rate of its warehouses. 
  • Retail business is benefiting from the positive impact of new contracts, and is posting sales growth. 
  • Driven by a buoyant market, the Foodservice business is continuing to grow, thanks to sustained sales momentum.

STEF International

  • In Italy, the Group is enjoying positive growth momentum across all its businesses, particularly in frozen foods. 
  • Portugal continues to grow organically thanks to the ongoing development of one of its new clients. 
  • Belgium continues to benefit from the integration of TransWest, acquired in October 2023, and from the commissioning of its new logistics hub in Tubize, south of Brussels. 
  • In the Netherlands, in a competitive market, our efforts are focused on integrating Bakker Logistiek, acquired on 4 January.
  • Finally, despite a difficult economic climate and a fall in consumer spending, business in the UK and Switzerland is growing thanks to positive currency effects.
