The company was founded in 1988 by the Giacobazzi family, who, following the aforementioned acquisition, will retain the remaining 34 per cent stake of the company. Giacobazzi is the fifth largest player in the Italian Balsamic Vinegar of Modena


IGP market. In 2015 the company posted sales of more than €15 m of which 90 per cent came from exports (mainly the UK, USA and Northern Europe).

‘The partnership with Fattorie Giacobazzi ­ says the president of Granarolo, Gianpiero Calzolari ­is part of a wider business diversification plan which aims to build a solid international customer base for Italian, high quality, food products”.
