Leagel Srl signs an important agreement with International Flavors & Fragrances Inc., world leader in the flavours and fragrances sector, in order to create new and important growth opportunities in the ice cream market.
Leagel, always attentive to innovation and research, has started a partnership with IFF with the aim of expanding into the world market and other segments of the ice cream industry. This is a historical and necessary step to continue to ensure constant growth and the development of new products and technologies, resulting in an expansion of the company’s know-how. This partnership is also related to the agreement signed in 2017 between IFF and SDFLC Brasil, licensee of the Leagel brand in South America, allowing the two companies working in the ice cream market to continue to operate in synergy. The agreement reached with IFF is an important step in the entrepreneurial path taken by the Leardini and Calabrò families, who will maintain their current company positions without changing the management structure. The internationalization of the Leagel brand represents an important opportunity for all employees, the sales network and customers.
CEO Roberto Leardini states that:
“The choice of a prestigious and highly experienced international partner will allow Leagel to face new challenges and significantly increase its position at a global level, continuing its mission of spreading the culture of good gelato in the world”.
