Arcaplanet

Arcaplanet is a leading pet care retail chain in Italy. Through its network of 152 directly operated stores (“DOS”), the company offers a large and diverse product range (pet food, accessories, health and grooming) of niche and premium brands as well as its own pet food label.

Why we backed them

  • To help capitalise on the retail chain expansion in the resilient Italian pet care market
  • To consolidate the fragmented Italian market starting from their existing strong leading position (c.150 fully owned stores)
  • To expand abroad
  • To back a strong management team lead by the CEO/ founder

The investment strategy

  • To consolidate within this fragmented market through a combination of new store roll-outs and potential add-on acquisitions
  • To enhance operational efficiencies through the growth of its private label, improved sourcing, CRM optimisation and enhanced category management
