Pinsalab has been acquired by Deutsche Invest Capital Solutions

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 Horeca operators in Italy and in a number of other European countries. Pinsa, also known as Roman pizza, is an ancient recipe that has become popular in Italy over the past two or three years. The company markets its product under the Pinsami and Mr. Pinsa labels in room temperature, chilled, and frozen formats. Pinsalab started its activity a few years ago and was one of the market’s first movers. The company is now the leader of one of the fastest-growing segments, increasing by 50% annually in Italy, as consumers are looking for a healthier alternative to pizza. Pinsa producers compete with frozen pizza and pizza-base companies. They are all part of the savory bakery market.

Deutsche Invest Capital Solutions, a member of the Deutsche Invest Capital Partners group, specializes in leveraged buy-outs, growth investments and carveouts of family businesses in Europe, with a focus on the DACH region. Deutsche Invest Capital Solutions follows a sustainable, long-term investment approach which combines transaction, finance, value-creating management and operational know-how.
