Leading pinsa producer on the verge of international expansion

Deal Flash

The private shareholders of Pinsalab S.r.l. have sold the company to Deutsche Invest Capital Solutions GmbH.

Pinsalab supplies pinsas to large retailers and hospitality operators in Italy and other European countries. It markets its product under the Pinsami and Mr. Pinsa labels in room temperature, chilled and frozen formats. The company started its activity a few years ago and was one of the market’s first movers. It’s now the leader of one of the fastest-growing food & beverage segments, increasing by 50% annually in Italy, as consumers look for a healthier alternative to pizza.

We chose Oaklins because of its deep understanding of the ecosystem in which we operate and of our business in particular. It was the right choice as we saw the team bringing numerous appealing solutions to the table, creating competitive tension between potential international buyers, driving the deal, anticipating and handling the challenges of this tumultuous period.
