Our businesses

Bolloré Group’s history started in 1822 on the banks of the Odet river near Quimper, In Brittany. Long specialized as a thin paper manufacturer, the Bolloré Group has evolved over the past two centuries. Facing technical and social challenges, it switched from thin paper to thin plastic films. For more than thirty years, the Bolloré Group has been diversifying in order to better manage risks. Its constant innovation and international strategy led the Group to hold strong position in each of its business lines: oil logistics, communications, industry.


    Bolloré Energy is a major player in oil logistics in France and in Europe.



    The Bolloré Group’s communications division is based on its holdings:
    – in Vivendi, with: Groupe Canal+, the pay-TV leader in France; Havas Group, one of the world’s largest communication groups; Prisma Media,

    division relies on the know-how and expertise of several Bolloré Group entities brought
