Value creation

Aksìa Group (through Aksìa Capital V) acquired Master from the founders with the aim to drive the Company through its next development phase. In particular, the project envisages, through a buy and build strategy, the creation of a new pole in the premium segment of gnocchi and fresh pasta. Aksìa will support the company both in the research of new potential targets and in the strengthening of the managerial structure to generate commercial and operational synergies and foster the international expansion.
