Froneri has confirmed that the existing management team will continue to lead the business.

He continues: “Our consumers are at the heart of our business and we intend to invest in the local brands, products and flavours that Nestlé has been exciting the market with for over 20 years. We’re looking forward to welcoming the team into Froneri.”

Marco Settembri, chief executive of Zone Europe, Middle East and North Africa, Nestlé, says: “With its continued growth and global prominence in the ice cream market, Froneri’s success speaks for itself.
