Investment story

Building a platform for sustainable growth

Our sustainable dining and food packaging solutions are used in professional kitchens and homes worldwide, whether you dine in, dine out, or dine anywhere.

A resilient company on an exciting growth journey

Our “Decade of Action” strategy aims to make us a trusted sustainability leader by 2030. It lays a solid foundation for developing competitive, sustainable products and services for the HoReCa market. Our firm purpose is that people should be able to meet and enjoy food, togetherness, and design with a clear conscience. Our very basic need to meet and socialize, and often together with food, provides resilience to economic downturns and societal changes.

Three primary aspects form our prospects:

Business areas with complementary business logic and brands with strong market recognition

  • Two business areas – Dining Solutions and Food Packaging Solutions – serve the same customer base, enabling scale benefits.
  • Financial and operational diversification creates stable, strong cash flows (which can be used for investments, acquisitions, dividends, and share buybacks).
  • High margins in Dining Solutions and higher growth in Food Packaging Solutions create profitable growth for the Group.
  • Brands with market-leading recognition in all our markets.

Operating in markets with a steadily growing demand

  • Our products support current trends: the combination of an urban lifestyle of convenience and the demand for sustainability and smart disposable products.
  • The middle class – our primary target group – is expected to grow globally by 33% (from 3.6 to 4.8 billion) between 2020–2030, and their overall consumption is expected to increase by 41%*.
  • Changing customer behavior with increased at-home consumption of pre-packaged food. Digitalization reinforces this behavior.

Innovative investments and high customer knowledge create opportunities to meet lifestyle trends and ensure relevance.

  • Own innovation lab, collaborations and investments in companies working on circular solutions, plus two own startups, all meeting sustainability challenges.
  • Size and strength allow Duni Group to invest more (than its local competitors within its segment) in sustainable solutions and the transition from plastic to fibers.
  • An extensive sales force provides a high market presence and a deep understanding of market trends and customer needs.
