Perfetti Van Melle was established in March 2001 through the merger of Perfetti SpA and Van Melle N.V., however the two companies had been cooperating in a number of countries since 1979.
Later, in 1991 common interests led Perfetti to acquire a 37% share in Van Melle. This was only the first step in a partnership that was to prove profitable from the outset, growing even stronger until in January 2001 Perfetti bought Van Melles entire sharehoulding. In July 2006 PVM acquired 100% of Chupa Chups, a family owned Spanish Group famous all over the world for its well-loved Chupa Chups and Smint brands. This further acquisition reinforced the leadership position of the Group in the confectionery market, expanding its sales potential in mature and developing markets.
