Delifrance in Hong Kong

Délifrance is a bakery company that serves "French style" bakery products in over 50 countries on five continents. It has been in operation for more than 25 years.

The parent company of Délifrance is Grands Moulins de Paris, which is a major French milling company and supplies 100% of the flour used in Délifrance's products.

The Délifrance brand name attempts to recreate French taste worldwide. Délifrance offers catering professionals several "French style" quick service concepts.

Délifrance has 12 subsidiaries in Europe and the Middle East.

Délifrance restaurants serve "French style" baked products such as croissants, gâteaux, fougassettes, pains au chocolat, brioches, crisp praline, and baguettes. Most Délifrance restaurants also serve beverages, coffee and pasta.

In 1997 Sembawang Corporation Limited acquired controlling interest of Délifrance Asia Ltd. In 1999, Prudential Asset Management Asia Limited (PAMA) Group Inc. acquired 100% of Délifrance Asia Ltd and took it private.

In December 2007, Auric Pacific Group Limited listed on the main board of the Singapore Exchange (SGX) purchased Délifrance Asia Ltd from PAMA for SGD75 Million.

Délifrance operated in the Philippines as a subsidiary of Jollibee until late 2010, when both companies severed their ties. All former Délifrance branches now operate as CafeFrance, which is owned and operated by Euro-Med Laboratories Philippines, Inc.[1]
