Group


Ten plants and ten brands, an industrial management reality from a single entrepreneur, Romano Freddi, whose mission is identified with the continuous technologic modernisation focused on efficiency, productivity, competitiveness and quality. The secret of the success of the food group Romano Freddi can be found in this firm conviction, together with bringing original and typically Italian creations. The national characterisation of the product, the offering of innovative products, to be innovator and promoter of new productive technologies, the all result in the Group being today the most important Italian Holding in all of Europe in the sector of deep-frozen products.

Romano Freddi manages an industrial realm which includes Mantua Surgelati Spa, Bustaffa Spa, Columbus Srl and Effegi Spa. Leader in the European market, Mantua Surgelati produces ice cream, frozen and precooked pizza. Bustaffa is engaged in production of fresh cheeses, whereas Columbus concentrates its efforts on tomatoes and their byproducts. Last but not least, Effegi is specialised in deep-frozen fish products. Recently put into function in the historic company seat were avant-gardist technologies applied in the conversion of the facilities to a line of frozen pizza cooked on wood. Sales are increasing all over Europe, with a sensible presence even outside the continent, and the export quota is significant at 65% of total billings.
