Latteria Soresina, the leading Italian dairy cooperative, has announced the acquisition of Fratelli Oioli, a dairy company specialising in the production of gorgonzola cheese with protected designation of origin (PDO).
In a press release, Latteria Soresina said the acquisition would make it the first company able to offer PDO gorgonzola from ‘farm to table’.
“The Fratelli Oioli company has always upheld the importance of values such as integrity and dedication to work, always putting the needs of its customers first, and in fact garnering ever-increasing satisfaction”, said Roberto Oioli, plant manager at Fratelli Oioli. “Latteria Soresina has the strength to maintain market value and product quality, being a company with enormous managerial capacities and potential on the domestic and international markets”.
Tiziano Fusar Poli, president at Latteria Soresina, added: “The goal is to further develop the Oioli company by combining excellent skills, sound entrepreneurial values and the Latteria Soresina sales network, which is very effective on the domestic and international markets and will now have this extraordinary cheese of excellence in its product portfolio”.
Latteria Soresina will have total ownership of the Fratelli Oioli , although responsibility for day-to-day operations will remain with the current management.
