The name of the Group comes from its two main founding companies: Perfetti, a leading Italian confectionery company, acquired Van Melle, a primary Dutch confectionery group in 2001. This acquisition created the world’s third largest global confectionery company. The two companies were of similar size and so decided to name the new Group by simply joining both original company names.
Perfetti Van Melle Group B.V. is the Group parent company and has registered offices in Amsterdam. It is a legal entity incorporated in The Netherlands.
We have other Group offices located in Breda, The Netherlands and in Lainate, Italy.
You can contact your local Perfetti Van Melle company and it will respond to queries within 1 working day. There is no centrally located global consumer services contact.
