(PRWEB) November 19, 2007
Locasystem International SA (http://www.locasystem.com) today announced that it has acquired a minority ownership interest in McLean, Virginia-based Gourmandia USA LLC (http://www.gourmandia.com), a provider of free on-demand food recipe videos and lifestyle videos from the world's best chefs and restaurants. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
In announcing Gourmandia.com’s minority ownership acquisition, Locasystem International Chairman and CEO Jacques Maugin said, "An investment opportunity we couldn’t miss! As opposed to many video sites that strive for video quantity with no due regard to quality, Gourmandia has identified a niche in the food industry and has a well thought-out plan to become the leader in that niche. I am absolutely convinced that Gourmandia will for years to come be the absolute leading food video platform for true gourmets. The platform already has an impressive list of the world's best chefs and restaurants, with more chefs and restaurants continuing to signup. Our cash injection will provide Gourmandia with the technology tools necessary for them to gain a competitive advantage over its competition."
Earlier this year, Gourmandia USA launched its food video recipe platform in the USA and is already experiencing a tremendous growth in viewers base and membership.
Gourmandia USA's CEO Ray Kuate said, "We are honored to have deserved the trust of Locasystem International; their money injection will allow our company to sustain its unbelievable growth with more to come!"
