The Reitzel Group is structured around:

3 operational subsidiaries:

Reitzel Switzerland

Created by Hugo Reitzel in 1909 in Aigle, Reitzel Switzerland is the group’s parent company and a key driver in Reitzel’s development. Today, at our historical factory in Aigle, we produce all of our pickles, as well as a wide range of mustards, sauces and vinegars.

In 2017, Reitzel Switzerland achieved a turnover of 36.5 million euros, and currently has 103 employees.
54% of Reitzel Switzerland’s turnover is generated through its food services. The subsidiary has a main brand, Hugo Reitzel, named after the company’s founder, which is active in both the food service and retail trade sectors.

A new range named HUGO was launched in 2017 in the Swiss market, offering products made with locally grown ingrédients.

Reitzel France

Reitzel France historically represents the fusion of 3 companies from within the pickle industry, acquired successively by the group: the canning factory Béziers in Castelsarrasin, the canning factory BRIAND in Bourré, and the company CHRIST in Connerré.

Today, Reitzel France has 113 employees and a turnover of 34 million euros. 

Its flagship product: the gherkin, the farming of which Reitzel has been striving to revive since 2016.

In addition to custom work for private labels (57% of its turnover), Reitzel France also has several national brands: “Le Jardin d’Orante” (condiments and dressings), distributed across supermarkets and superstores “Hugo Reitzel”, designed for professionals in the food service industry.

Production is currently spread across 2 factories: in Bourré and Connerré. The company’s headquarters are located in Paris.
