Diversifying in Poland

“The acquisition of the Cosmetics Partner business will enable us to diversify our range of personal care ingredients and to widen our portfolio offering in Poland," ​stated Yann Lissillour, Director of Mergers and Acquisitions for the Safic-Alcan Group.

Cosmetics Partner distributes a wide range of natural ingredients, such as actives, extracts and complexes of extracts, vegetable oils and butters, essentials oils, scrubs and dyes.

Poland focus

The economy in Poland will continue to grow at a healthy pace in 2017, according to market research firm Euromonitor International.

The firm cautions that unstable conditions in the Russian and Ukrainian markets are a drag for Poland, while in terms of GDP, the country’s capacity will being to fall in the coming several years, dropping to about 2.5% in the medium term.
