The Vranken-Pommery Monopole group demonstrated its ability to absorb economic shocks in the course of the year 2020. This resilience is based on its recognised brands, the quality of its products, the flexibility of its organisation and its presence in all distribution channels, particularly in home consumption networks.
The end consumer has remained attached to the group's products and has adapted its consumption patterns to the constraints of the Covid-19 pandemic, in particular the restrictions on mobility and conviviality.
Consolidated revenues for 2020 are down 11.1% to 244 million euros, with exports up 60%.
In the Champagne business, in a market that is down around 18% in volume (source: CIVC), Vranken-Pommery Monopole is gaining market share with a limited 11.9% decline. The group even managed to increase its sales in the countries in the north-eastern crown of Europe and in Australia.
The growth of Provence and Camargue Rosé Wines was confirmed at +11.7%. The group is establishing itself as a leader in organic winegrowing, thus responding to growing consumer demand.
Port and Douro Wines suffered from the lack of tourist activity in Portugal, partially offset by export sales.
