Business Development

Since EMERAM invested in 2017, the Frostkrone Food Group has consistently posted double-digit annual sales growth. The company has significantly boosted its international presence through five follow-on acquisitions – two in France, two in the UK and one in the USA. At the same time, Frostkrone has rigorously expanded its product range. With support from EMERAM, the company has improved its processes, introduced a new controlling and reporting system, and established a central management structure, alongside strong local management.
