Participation Colucci Pizza and more GmbH & Co. KG
(Pizza) baker at heart – That sums it up pretty well. Since summer 2020, it’s official. Bakerman has acquired a stake in the Colucci company, expanding its area of expertise in the production of pizza and pizza snack items. In addition to toured doughs in the form of filled and unfilled croissants, sweet and savory puff pastry products, Plunder snacks and innovative hand breads, the pizza world now also occupies an important place within the product range. Everything from a single source. “We have been able to add a new, innovative member of the family who brings tremendous expertise and exceptional creativity to the pizza business. For what’s in our pipeline, it’s the perfect addition to the future engine of Bakerman and of course that of our customers – nationally and internationally,” emphasizes Heiko Thees, owner of Bakerman. The investment brings changes: Falk Löffler will take over the management of Colucci together with Marco Colucci and will retain his procuration position at Bakerman.
