Stores operating under that La Trinitaine banner are said to be excluded from the deal.

A subsidiary of the Roullier group, Patisseries Gourmandes is the owner of bakery brands such as Ker Cadelac, Coathalem, Breton Gourmand and Un Gourmand A Paris.
Commenting on the news, Patisseries Gourmandes president Mickaël Le Jossec said: “This deal reinforces development in our core bakery business. La Trinitaine’s industrial facilities will complement our own existing operations, allowing us to strengthen our presence in the Grand Ouest region”.
