防城螺铂化纤有限公司Lavazza's upward trend
In 2006, the Lavazza Group continued in its work to focus resources on the core business and to become more and more oriented towards Europe and the international scene. The positive global results achieved were also the result of the Group's dynamic acquisition policy and increasing presence in mature markets.
The past two years witnessed major transactions aimed at expanding Lavazza’s international footprint. In 2005, the eighth subsidiary of the Group, was started up in Rio de Janeiro under the company name Lavazza do Brasil.
In March 2007, Lavazza acquired Barista, the second leading Indian coffee shop chain in terms of outlets, with 150 coffee shops globally (of which 132 in India) and Fresh & Honest Café Limited.
Through this acquisition, the Group has become one of the leading players in India in this sector and has also further strengthened its position as a worldwide player.
