The Lonati Group has invested in the long-term in the agro-food sector.

Dependent on commitment and ever-challenging, the agricultural and food industry represents a solid basis for a primary market, a guarantee for higher stability and durability over time. Today more than ever, Lonati Group believes that growth in a very competitive market like the Italian agro-food market depends on quality in each stage of production and continuous research without compromise.LONATI began farming in the 60s on the Group plots of land first assigned to third parties.
In 2004 the direct management of the land was integrated with cattle breeding for the production of High Quality milk. From 2004 onwards, other farms of the plain of Brescia were added. In 2012, LONATI GROUP acquired a share in the ALIMVEST GROUP, which through the operating companies located in VALTIDONE (PC), produces and sells top quality charcuterie (coppa, pancetta, bresaola, salami and raw Parma ham).
Today the Group activity in the agriculture and food sector is developed on a total of over 200 hectares of cultivated land and more than 1,000 cows that produce more than 4,300,000 kg/year of milk. The affiliated companies have an annual turnover of about 60 million Euro. Each production area, from milk to charcuterie and dairy products, has achieved absolute record results in their own field of specialization.




Over the past decade, besides the production, the processing and sale of High-Quality milk, it is also involved in the activity of cattle breeding and marketing, fertilizer and electricity which are produced by means of nitrogen and biogas stripping. Additionally, CASCINA SEI ORE has become one of the most exclusive residential complexes, an oasis of peace outside the city. 


Founded in the 1950s, the "Valtidone Industria Salumi" artisan workshop begins its history in Vicobarone, a hamlet of Ziano Piacentino (PC). At the new site in Rovescala, a town in the Oltrepò Pavese, the butchery business continues under the banner of tradition. Over time, the company also grew with strategic external acquisitions, to activate different skills and expand the choice of products, such as pancetta coppata and cubes from Salumificio il Colle, the production site in Vicobarone, where it all began. With Pontenure Salumi, on the other hand, the production of supply chain products and two historical cured meats of the Piacenza pork-butchery tradition has developed: Coppa Piacentina DOP and Pancetta Piacentina DOP. Not long after, the company also obtained recognition for the production, in Rovescala, of the Coppa di Parma IGP, a traditional Emilian cured meat. After the purchase of shares in 2013, the Lonati Group completes the acquisition of the Valtidone SPA Group in 2017. The current production sites are in Rovescala (PV), with 6,200 square meters, in Vicobarone (PC), 3,200 square meters and in Pontenure (PC), 2,200 square meters, three locations between Oltrepò Pavese and the province of Piacenza, which boast a centuries-old butchery history and an ideal microclimate for obtaining cured meats of a high and universally recognized quality. Over the years, the company has established itself both in the traditional charcuterie sector, with protected PDO and PGI cured meats, and in the high-service content sector, becoming one of the leading producers of sliced coppa and bacon. The production sites have obtained BRC and IFS certification, global standards for food safety recognized at international level, essential for the protection of customers and consumers, as a tool for managing food safety, quality and legality requirements.


INIZIATIVE ALIMENTARI SRL was established to promote and increase the activities of Lonati GROUP in the food industry. The company was founded in partnership with entrepreneurs from Brescia, with the purpose of selling and managing investments in companies and projects in the food industry in order to identify and support who works with innovation, dynamism and quality.
