The 2000's crowned the company's success. Cristel firmly established its leading position on the French market and its presence grew to over thirty countries. Cristel products appeared on the shelves of the most famous stores in Paris, Tokyo, Moscow, New York, London and other major capitals. Renowned names in French cuisine expressed their affinity with the brand.
This decade was also one of changes within the company. In 2006, Bernadette and Paul Dodane entrusted Emmanuel Brugger with the general management of Cristel. Damien Dodane was given responsibility for marketing strategy and international development. His sister, Myriam, a specialist in business law in Metz, was tasked with managing the company's legal affairs, in particular matters relating to intellectual property. As joint directors, Paul and Bernadette Dodane still have an active role in the company. Paul Dodane remains a designer, as ever, and Bernadette Dodane is still the brand's most determined and successful ambassador.
