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. This milestone deal marks the final stage of the transition of our EMENA ice cream businesses into Froneri, further strengthening its presence in the region.”

Leading Noga brands including La Cremeria, Extreme, Cookilida, Crunch and Gumigum will continue to be available.
