Our History

This is where it all started ... Grand Moulins de Paris: Délifrance’s parent company.

First World War : Four men teamed up to build the world’s biggest industrial mill, Grands Moulins Réunis


Grand Moulins Réunis joins forces with other major players from the milling industry, then merges with Grands Moulins de Paris (created in April 1919 and managed by Ernest and Marcel Vilgrain).


The first bag of flour comes off the mill’s production line. Ernest and Marcel Vilgrain, as directors of Grands Moulins de Paris, create the biggest mill in the world.


The company acquires Société de Spécialités Surgelées (SSS).


Creation of Délifrance


Grands Moulins de Paris (GMP) is acquired by Groupe Bouygues.


Bouygues sells GMP to a group of investors lead by AXA Investment Managers in Paris.


NutriXo Group is created through the milling activities of Grands Moulins de Paris, Euromill Nord, Grands Moulins Storione, Inter-Farine and Délifrance’s frozen bakery activities.
