FRANCE: Boizel Chanoine sales beat volumes in '07
Boizel Chanoine Champagne has seen sales value outdo sales volume in 2007.
The company, which acquired Groupe Lanson International in early-2006 for EUR122.7m (US$150.3m), said earlier this week that sales last year in value terms rose by 15.5% on 2006, coming in at EUR359.4m.
Volumes meanwhile, increased by only 3.3% to 21.6m bottles, with Boizel Chanoine claiming the results reflected "the group's focus on developing the value of its houses".
The proportion of sales made up by exports for Boizel Chanoine inched up 1% on 2006 to 46%.
The company owns seven Champagne houses in the French region, including maison Burtin and Champagne Chanoine Freres.
