Pierre Hermé Paris' PESTEL

Company Tax of 33%
High taxation on wages

- The annual French growth in 2013 was 0,5%
- France is still suffering from the economic crisis so the french consumer purchasing power is low.
-Easy Monetary Policy since in the end of 2013 the -European Central Bank lowered its main interest rate by 0,25% : more easy to get a loan
-The French inflation rate is 1%

- France is known for its gastronomy and its "haute couture": Pierre Hermé uses these two aspects to create "Haute Couture Pastry".
- More and more French tend to look for good quality and gourmet products.
- The company targets the active population, high wages and the part of the population which is more represented in the pyramid of aging.

- The Know-how is handed down in kitchens by the Chief Pierre Hermé who got his knowledge from the most prestigious kitchens of France.

- Effective e-shopping: commands can be made on internet

- Minimum use of paper: Web newsletter, invitations to events by e-mail.


Follows the French and European rules, restrictions and norms on hygiene and food safety

- Price of a fuel barril is high so importing exotic products is expensive.
