Over the past three years, the company has developed an export business to the wider Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region.
Bridgepoint noted that the Polish biscuit market is highly fragmented with the three largest players holding just over a third of the market, which is expected to grow at an annual rate of six per cent.
Bridgepoint partner Khai Tan said, “Dr Gerard has transformed itself into a leading player and is already well positioned for further long term growth in its market following its successful multichannel strategy.
“With its differentiated and innovative value-for-money products, strong preferred partnership status with its trade customers and robust operational execution, it is set to consolidate its position in Poland and develop a significant international platform in the CEE.
Bridgepoint’s recent deals include the exit from Finnish private healthcare provider Terveystalo, which was sold to Swedish buyout firm EQT.
