Bridor Acquires Artisanal Bakery Product-Maker Pandriks

Bridor, a subsidiary of Le Duff Group, has acquired organic and artisanal bakery product-maker Pandriks Holding B.V.

The acquisition of Pandriks will consolidate Bridor’s foothold in North-Western Europe, expand its production capacity, and bolster its product portfolio, particularly in the organic bakery segment, the company noted.

Philippe Morin, worldwide CEO of Bridor, stated, “The acquisition of Pandriks is consistent with Bridor’s strategy. It gives us the opportunity to take a leading position in key markets, such as the Netherlands and Germany.

“This acquisition will also strengthen our teams, with the highly experienced, qualified and motivated people from Pandriks joining Bridor. Pandriks will bring to life the Bridor purpose: ‘Share the bakery cultures of the world.’”


Pandriks, founded in the Netherlands in 2012, is a producer of artisanal bakery products and organic bread for private labels and its own brand, SlooOW.


It operates two production facilities – in Meppel (Netherlands) and Fulda (Bio Breadness, Germany) – and supplies its products to European retail chains, as well as overseas customers.

The company employs around 400 people and generated a turnover of €150 million in 2023.

The CEO of Pandriks, Peter van den Berg, stated, “Pandriks has grown significantly in recent years and wants to invest in further expansion, to optimally serve our clients.

“With Le Duff Group as our new shareholder, we believe that it is possible to achieve our goals while preserving our unique identity, philosophy and strategy.”


Bridor was founded in 1988 by Louis Le Duff, in Rennes, France. It manufactures and supplies premium breads and Viennese pastries from multiple production sites across the world to renowned restaurant and hotel chains.
