Our history

A rich heritage of over 400 years

Biscuit International is the leading private label biscuit and bread substitute manufacturer in Europe, with a rich heritage of over 400 years of expertise in delivering excellent taste at great value.
Biscuit International was created in 2016, after the merger between two leading biscuit companies from two European countries: Poult Group in France and Banketgroep in the Netherlands, combining their expertise and highly skilled workforces to create Europe’s leading private label biscuit manufacturer.
Since 2016, we have built a proven European consolidation platform which has successfully integrated seven new companies, expanding its geographical and product reach.
