It also adds considerable new manufacturing and logistical capabilities to our Italian platform, which will support our growth ambitions in Italy and across Europe. This is very consistent with our vision to position Valeo Foods as the undisputed European sweet treats champion.”

We very much look forward to welcoming close to 90 new colleagues to our team and work with them to accelerate the growth of our enlarged Italian business.”

Valeo Foods Group is one of Europe’s fastest growing food groups and one of Europe’s leading producers and purveyors of quality sweets, treats and snacks.
