Our balance sheet has also been strengthened significantly.

We accelerated the transformation of our food models through several organic and external investments while also actively managing our portfolio of activities. The transfer of P+L responsibility to regions and countries, fully effective from October 1, 2022, will simplify the organization.

«I warmly thank our teams for their impressive engagement and performance in the field with our clients and our suppliers in these challenging times.
