Compagnie Fruitière’s Expanding Its Presence In Italy


CastaldiPartners assisted the Compagnie Fruitière Group, leader in Europe and prominent fruit producer in the Africa-Caribbean-Pacific region, in the pursuit of its development in Italy, through the acquisition of two new sites.

After acquiring the Stradella site near Milan in May 2017, the group is developing with 2 new sites on the C.A.R. in Rome (Centro Agroalimentare Roma) and at the Interporto of Padoue, therefore doubling its total banana ripening capacity to reach 80,000 tons per year. The 3 sites will also develop the distribution of other exotic fruits such as pineapples and mangoes.

CastaldiPartners advised the Compagnie Fruitière Group on the deal with a team composed by Enrico Castaldi (Picture) and Lisa-Alice Julien.
