FRANCE: Export growth boosts Champagne Jacquart

By | 4 April 2007

Champagne Jacquart has become the latest house to benefit from growing demand for Champagne after seeing sales rise by 12% last year.

The company said today (4 April) that revenues for 2006 reached EUR45m (US$60m) as it sold over 3.5m bottles, a rise of 19% on 2005.

Some 60% of Champagne Jacquart's sales are made outside France and the house saw export sales leap 30% last year thanks to growth in the UK and Asia.

Champagne Jacquart MD Jean-Marc Pottiez said 2006 was "a very satisfactory year". He said: "The brand is progressing exactly how we want it to. Our policy over the last three years has been to strengthen our position in the on-trade and with independent and high street retailers and this is happening."

The Jacquart brand is distributed by Jacquart & Associés Distribution, a subsidiary of Alliance Champagne, which was formed in 1998 by three of the major of co-operatives in Champagne.
