Yves Rocher Sa in Beauty and Personal Care

Company Profile

About This Report

Jul 2015

Yves Rocher, a France-based producer and retailer of beauty and personal care products, posted 4% growth in 2014. Its performance was constrained by heavy reliance on Western Europe and particularly on France. The acquisition of the Turkish brand Flormar in 2012 helped to diversify its geographic market reach, but a focus on building internet sales and rolling out new franchises will need to be part of any coherent international development strategy.
