Milan, Italy – Turnover €35m
April 2005 – MBI – Majority stake
This “buy and build” project aims at creating the leading foodservice distribution group in northern Italy and a leading company in the overall Italian hotel and catering sector.
The rapidly growing Italian foodservice market is still very much fragmented with more than 2.000 small competitors and the leader, Marr, having just over 6% of the overall market.
The management team will be supporting the management teams of the acquired companies with the aim to develop synergies, build a brand and identify common growth strategies.
