Innovation Update Q2 2022: Meat and Meat Alternatives

Meat alternatives continue to push boundaries, as companies explore 3D printed, plant-based, and precision fermentation-based alternatives. As a result, shoppers are more open to experimental formulations that introduce new flavors to meat products, blur traditional food categories, or swap in new ingredient types. It is vital for their development that retailers acknowledge this range of emerging trends during these increasingly uncertain times. Brands must continue to understand how consumer needs and desires change, and offer a range of products that reflect the world around them, therefore developing purchasing and consumption decisions. Exciting non-traditional formulations are hitting the market - following the trajectories and target audiences of these launches will help other brands find their niche.

Rigamonti, founded in 1913 and based in Montagna in Valtellina in the Lombardy region is a specialist producer of the local cured meat bresaola.

The company exports to 23 countries, mainly in Europe. It has been owned by JBS since 2011.

Founded in 1978 by the Vismara family, Brianza Salumi, based in Sirone, also in Lombardy, has a similar manufacturing footprint to Rigamonti, albeit on a smaller scale, but specialises in the production and distribution of organic and low salt cured ham. In 2005, it patented the GranForma, a low salt cooked ham.

The company closed 2018 with revenues of EUR13.9m.   Rigamonti said the deal will allow it to expand its range of products and extend its international reach.

It said the management team at Brianza Salumi – the Vismara family – will be retained.

Rigamonti has stated ambitions to reach annual turnover of EUR300m.
