Le Duff Group Acquires Lecoq Cuisine Corporation

Groupe Le Duff and its subsidiary Bridor announced the acquisition of Lecoq Cuisine Corporation, a leader in North America in the production of specialty Viennese and French-style pastries. 

This new investment in the United States aims to support the global growth of Bridor and strengthens its current production capacities in Canada and the U.S.  The Group has previously invested more than €200 million in North American production sites.  

Founded in 1991 in New York by the acclaimed pastry chef Eric Lecoq, Lecoq Cuisine manufactures and markets more than 150 varieties of premium products, in particular viennoiseries.

Present mainly in the U.S., Lecoq Cuisine also exports to Canada and the Caribbean. The products are manufactured at the company’s production site in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The company employs 250 collaborators and its revenue stands at $60 million (2022).

Louis Le Duff, Founder & Chairman of Le Duff Group and Bridor, said: “Having followed Eric Lecoq’s exemplary career with great interest for several years, I am especially proud of this acquisition. The Group’s international history is closely linked to America, which is my second home”.

Philippe Morin, CEO of Bridor, emphasizes: “We could not be more pleased to be able to incorporate Lecoq Cuisine into the Bridor and Le Duff family.  Eric Lecoq’s unparalleled commitment to excellence, coupled with the individual passion and craft that goes into every product, make us natural partners for each other.”

Eric Lecoq, founder & CEO of Lecoq Cuisine, added “Our intense focus on excellence and innovation is matched only by Le Duff’s reputation and track record for producing high quality products and exceptional customer service throughout its almost 50-year history.  I am honored to join with Le Duff’s founder, the pioneer Louis Le Duff, and his team in exploring our next phase of growth.  Together, we will be a powerhouse in every market in which we will operate.”
