Majority acquisition by Ambrosi SpA of Bertozzi SpA

Ambrosi will increase its market share in the Parmigiano Reggiano market

Castenedolo - Ambrosi SpA has acquired majority ownership of Abele Bertozzi SpA, a company founded in 1901 in the historic centre of Parma. Bertozzi SpA has enjoyed consistent growth over the past many years by offering a full assortment of innovative shapes and formats such as petals, cubes and flakes of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

The acquisition of Abele Bertozzi SpA complements the international strategy which Ambrosi SpA began a few years ago. The Bertozzi acquisition will also increase penetration in the important domestic market of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

Bertozzi since 1901

Ambrosi Spa is a leader in the Italian cheese sector and the acquisition of Bertozzi Spa will expand its presence in the market by introducing new products that will compliment the current range.

The acquisition of Bertozzi also addresses the new requirements mandated by the EU, which stipulates that the processing procedures such as cutting, grating and packaging of Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese can only be conducted in the Protected Denomination of Origin (DOP) area.

Mr. Giuseppe Ambrosi, President of the Ambrosi S.p.A. wants to underline theat: "This transaction consolidates the leading-position of our group in the cheese sector by completing our range of Parmigiano Reggiano items as well of Grana Padano items. The stategic value of the tansaction will be realized when the resources of the two companies harmonize and complement each other. We will begin working immediately to bring this great potential to the forefront."
