Verlinvest has acquired Tom&Co
Founded in 1991 as part of Delhaize Group and carved-out in 2016, Tom&Co is the leading franchise of pet food and accessories retail stores in Belgium, operating more than 175 stores across Belgium, France and Luxembourg complemented with an e-commerce store.
Since the carve-out from Delhaize Group in 2016, Tom&Co has significantly expanded its store portfolio in France while streamlining its Belgian operations. Leveraging on the new shareholder, Verlinvest’s extensive experience in building leading consumer companies, Tom&Co can further accelerate its growth to become a major player in Europe.
Siebrecht Declerck, head of Lincoln Belgium, commented, “Verlinvest shares the long-term vision and is an expert in building strong brands. With the support of Verlinvest, Tom&Co will be able to actively participate in the consolidation of the sector through acquisitions and thus achieve the ambition to become a leader in the European market.”
