Project

In 2003, Activa Capital organised the corporate spin-off of Mont Blanc from Nestlé, which remained a shareholder in the buyout until 2005, when Nestlé sold the Gloria brand to Mont Blanc.

In December 2006, Activa Capital organised the merger between Mont Blanc and Materne, the leading non-chilled fruit dessert brand.

The combined Materne - Mont Blanc group has created a leading group in milk and fruit-based desserts, with leading positions in fruit purées, milk desserts, jams and concentrated milk.
