Strategy

Autogrill is a company on the move. Growing non-stop over the years through acquisitions and successful bids for contracts, it has taken the lead in the concession business - first in food & beverage and later in travel retail & duty-free - and is now a global service provider for travellers.

Leadership consolidation, also thanks to the integration and reorganisation process launched after the most recent acquisitions, is the foundation of the Group strategy today.

The concentration of travel retail operations in Europe generates major synergies that will strengthen the Group's competitive position with the creation of a single retail company.

Renewal and expansion of the contract portfolio, leading to new, more diversified offerings, will also strengthen Autogrill's hold in the food & beverage sector.

The Group's next step is to develop by renewing and extending major contracts, pursuing new commercial agreements and joint ventures, and monitoring new markets to take advantage of growth opportunities.

Specific plans by segment:

Food & Beverage

  • consolidation in Europe and North America, in the Group's traditional channels
  • growth in travel channels where the Group's presence is still limited
  • assessment of development opportunities in specific regions

Travel Retail & Duty-Free

  • business concentration into a single company
  • greater competitiveness in key markets

In-Flight

  • consolidation in the main markets
