André Hoffmann, vice-chairman and CEO of L’Occitane, said, “We are cautiously optimistic as we head into FY2024. While the macroeconomic environment remains uncertain, we expect to achieve double-digit sales growth and healthy profitability, supported by significantly higher marketing investments for the core brand in key markets and channels, as well as for our new brands as they enter new markets, including the upcoming launch of Sol de Janeiro and Grown Alchemist in APAC. We are convinced that these investments will not only allow us to capitalize on the clear opportunities this year with the gradual return of international travel and a rebound in China, but also to propel our development as a multi-billion Euro, multi-brand group in the years to come.”
