Founded in 1968 by the Vezza family, Italgel is a leading manufacturer of gelatin and collagen for a wide range of applications for the food, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.
With a strong international vocation, the Company can count on a diversified network of primary customers and global distributors, consolidated relationships with European suppliers thanks to which it ensures total traceability and top raw materials quality, as well as a high degree of customization of the product.
Over the years, Italgel has grown to become a global player by diversifying its product and customer portfolio and created one of the most automated and efficient factories in the world.
The operation was carried out in collaboration with the founding family.
The transaction is the second deal carried out by BU in Italy, aimed at consolidating Italgel's positioning on the global market through an expansion plan to strengthen its leadership in the food, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical sectors, also through add-ons.
The deal was financed by Banco BPM as sole underwriter.
