Délices des 7 Vallées: a €25 million investment to build its second plant in Hauts-de-France
Délices des 7 Vallées – the history
Founded in 1996, the company produces a range of nearly 700 mini-doughnuts, muffins, cream puffs and another famous, regional speciality, the Christmas “coquille” or shell. At the end of 2018, Délices des 7 Vallées joined the Mademoiselle Desserts, a leader in the professional patisserie sector.
Today, Délices des 7 Vallées employs 300 people and boasts revenue of €68 million, including 20% generated by exports.
Boosted by rapid growth, Délices des 7 Vallées decided to build a new 6,300 m2 premises in the Ecopolis zone at Tincques in the Hauts-de-France. Major construction works for the new production site were launched in February 2021.
In May 2022, the layout is being finalised for the showroom, the marketing, purchasing and R&D departments, as well as offices and meeting rooms.
Two new production lines this year
Tests start in mid-May on the first production line with the first team. A second team arrives in June and a third in July.
“Demand remains high. This investment will help us ramp up mini-doughnut production by 50%” Jérôme Rogalski, Plant Manager
