- BB Grenadine started its activity in 2010 introducing in Spain the giraffe Sophie la girafe. How has been the acceptance of this brand in the domestic market? What goals have you marked?
Acceptance is still excellent, so our efforts to make it known here in Iberia are being rewarded.

We should note that Sophie la girafe is a long-haul product that has more than 54 years in the market, and it's beginning to be very famous worldwide. So living in this intercom society favors its inclusion in Spain and Portugal.

Our Sophie la Girafe target is to sell a giraffe per birth. Between Spain and Portugal there are approximately 580,000 births per year, so, today, we continue taking great tour of conduct.
