Founded 80 years ago, the Bur Distribution Group located in the Paris region is a specialist in delicatessen products through the Eric Bur and Rödel brands as well as the distribution of a large portfolio of high-end foreign brands sold in large food surfaces.

Bur Distribution has real advantages both in terms of the reputation of its brands, the quality of its products, the breadth of its ranges and the service provided to its customers.

Unicopa was a diversified group in the agri-business under severe financial constraints. It was the owner of Broceliande, a leading French producer of private label finished pork products sold to large retail chains.

In this transaction, Wagram Corporate Finance assisted the shareholders of Unicopa to execute a restricted and tailor made sale process dedicated to qualified strategic buyers from France and Europe. Wagram succeeded to create strong competitive tension amongst the potential buyers to optimize the terms of the transaction.

Wagram was exclusive sell-side advisor to Unicopa.

Spotless operates in the categories of laundry aids, insect control and household care in Western Europe and holds leading market positions in established European markets such as France, Italy, Spain, Benelux and the UK. The group has been built through targetted acquisition.
