Remy joined IPLC in 2015 to share his knowledge as a buyer with more than 10 years of experience in private label sourcing at various supermarket chains.
As a trainee he started his career at Système U in 2003 to review the eco-footprint of private label packaging. This project resulted in a significant reduction of packaging waste as well as an optimisation of the full supply chain. In 2004 he joined the Système U private label buying team as product manager responsible for the personal care category (HPC), import and non-dairy fresh food respectively. He launched the successful brand U Écologique and set up the import organisation to source private label directly in the country of origin.
In 2009 Remy moved to the Netherlands as a buying manager for AMS sourcing. Following significant success in bakery, ready meals and seafood categories he was promoted to a senior position. With a team of 2 buyers and 2 assistants, categories were developed to grow to €700m. Specific areas of expertise are the French private label market, retail price negotiations and the multi-cultural business management.
Remy speaks fluent English, Dutch and French (mother tongue).
