Atlantic Grupa is one of the leading FMCG companies in the region,[5][6] active in a number of industries. Its primary activities comprise production and distribution of food products, including sports nutrition products and dietary supplements. Additionally, Atlantic Grupa is also a manufacturer of OTC medicines and the company also operates Farmacia chain of pharmacies.[7] Finally, Atlantic Grupa has regional and international distribution network through which, in addition to its own range of brands, it also distributes a range of products from external partners.[8][9]

The company's headquarters are in Zagreb,[10] while 17 production facilities are located in Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia and Macedonia. Atlantic Grupa owns companies and representative offices in 10 countries.[11][12][13][14]

History[edit]

1991–2001: Foundation and domestic expansion[edit]

The beginning of Atlantic Grupa dates back to 1991 when Atlantic Trade d.o.o., a company for distribution of consumer goods, was founded. In the following years, the company grew into a national distributor with distribution centres in Zagreb, Split, Rijeka and Osijek and a distribution portfolio from principals such as Wrigley, Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, etc.[8][15]

In 1991, Atlantic Trade was incorporated and the development of consumer goods distribution started across Croatia.[10]

In 1997, the company invested in the "Ataco" distribution system in Bosnia & Herzegovina.[16] In 1998, Atlantic Grupa launched the first Croatian ready-made sandwich for broad distribution named Montana.[17]

2001–present: Regional expansion[edit]

With the opening of the representative office in Bosnia & Herzegovina in 2001 the company became a regional company,[16][5] which was in later years followed by own distribution companies in Serbia, Macedonia and Slovenia. In addition to being a distribution company, with the acquisition of Cedevita d.o.o. in 2001, Atlantic Grupa also became a production company.[8][15]

In 2001, Atlantic Grupa acquired Croatian instant vitamin drink producer Cedevita d.o.o..[18] In the following year, it incorporated Atlantic Grupa d.o.o.[8]

In 2003, it acquired Croatian cosmetics company Neva d.o.o.[19] It also started up a distribution company Atlantic Trade Skopje d.o.o.[20] In 2004, the Croatian manufacturer of all-purpose skin and lip balm Melem, was purchased in the same year.[15]

Breaking out of the region followed in 2005 with the acquisition of a German producer of sports food Multipower, with which Atlantic Grupa entered the European market and became an international company. In 2006 the company was transformed into a joint stock company and next year, after implementation of the initial public offering of shares, Atlantic Grupa quoted its shares on the official market of the Zagreb Stock Exchange. In 2008 the company started to acquire pharmacy institutions and form its own pharmacy chain Farmacia. A turning point in the company's operations was its largest acquisition of the company with a developed brand portfolio from its own production program and leading positions in regional markets – Droga Kolinska d.d.[8][15]

In 2005, Atlantic Grupa acquired German sports food producer Multipower, which marked the first acquisition outside of former Yugoslavia.[21]

In 2006, the company stablished a representative office in Moscow.[8] In the same year, Atlantic Grupa was transformed into a joint-stock company[22][23]

In 2007, it purchased Fidifarm, leading Croatian producer of OTC medicines[21][24] Also, it acquired Serbian instant vitamin drink producer Multivita d.o.o., thus cementing leadership status in the region in the industry of vitamin drinks.[25] In the same year Atlantic Grupa d.d. was listed on the official market of the Zagreb Stock Exchange.[26]

In 2008, pharmacy chain Farmacia was created.[27]

In 2010, the leading Slovenian food producer Droga Kolinska was purchased for 382 million euros.[28] The acquisition of Kalničke Vode Bio Natura d.d. came in the same year.[29]

In 2013, the company established a cooperation with Unilever.[30] In 2015, Atlantic Grupa acquired Foodland, Serbian producer of homemade fruit and vegetable products e.g. jams, juices [31] As of 2018, Atlantic Grupa is among the leading Croatian companies in terms of sales, with the annual revenue reaching 718 million euros for 2018 calendar year.[2]
