Henkell’s and Freixenet’s joint operations in the US and the UK will start in 2019 as ‘Freixenet-Mionetto’ and ‘Freixenet-Copestick’, respectively.

In 2017, Henkell & Co. Group’s revenues amounted to €702 million; Freixenet S.A. generated €535m in the past financial year. The two companies employ 4,000 people worldwide.
