Valpizza Group: acquires chilled pizza specialist

Bologna / IT. (vlp) Valpizza Group SRL conquers the chilled pizza segment thanks to «La Pizza+1». La Pizza+1 is the third add-on concluded by Valpizza, with Aksìa Capital V fund, after last November’s acquisition of Megic Pizza, leader in the manufacturing of modified atmosphere (ATM) chilled pizzas, and the acquisition a few days ago of C+D, a leading company active in the production of finger food and single- portion frozen specialities.

Founded in 1996 by Sante Ludovico and based in Gariga di Podenzano (Piacenza), La Pizza+1 carefully selects premium ingredients for its products. Company items range includes, from traditional to organic, pizzas, pinsas and focaccias both for retail market and professional use. Leader in the domestic market, thanks to its strong relationships with main Mass Market Retailers and Food Service players, the company started expanding internationally, supported by the optimisation of production processes.

Marco Setti, CEO of Valpizza commented: «This is a relevant acquisition with significant strategic potential for the Valpizza family adding another important milestone to its growth path. We are proud to team up with a leading player like La Pizza+1, which over the years had been able to innovate both in terms of product and process, achieving results that will contribute to the success of the Group.»
