Roberto Grasso – New Managing Director of Kimbo S.p.A.
NAPLES, Italy, Feb. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Change of helm for Kimbo S.p.A., leading coffee producer: the Board of 
Directors has unanimously chosen Roberto Grasso to be the new Managing Director 
for the Group.

The new Managing Director enjoyed strong support from the entire Rubino family, 
who see the value of a manager with consolidated international experience in 
further strengthening the company.

With the experience of his extensive management responsibilities within the 
company, Grasso will be able to contribute to Kimbo’s accelerated development 
plan in Italy and abroad. The Managing Director’s contribution will be 
particularly decisive as regards international markets, with a view to new 
acquisitions both within the sector and across the entire value chain. This all 
adds up to further bright growth prospects for the Group, which already has a 
presence in some 80 countries.

Roberto Grasso—Neapolitan, like Kimbo—boasts a long international career as top 
manager with Ferrero, leading Italian company in the international food 
industry. His CV features Managing Director positions in various parts of the 
world, including South America, Switzerland, Scandinavia, India, Australia, and 
New Zealand.  

“It is a true honour for me to accept this new position at the helm of Kimbo, a 
point of excellence in the Italian business community, a name which has 
contributed much to the history of coffee roasting in Italy and is now 
recognized abroad as the ambassador of true Neapolitan coffee,” comments 
Roberto Grasso. “The challenge I face will be to continue growing the brand 
without ever losing sight of the values that have always distinguished it: 
quality, respect for tradition, and capacity to innovate and take the culture 
of coffee to the world.”

Kimbo has been a leader in the coffee market in Italy for more than 50 years 
and a symbol of Italian coffee and Neapolitan espresso. Careful selection of 
raw ingredients, production control, and traceability along the entire 
production chain ensure product excellence while the most selective 
international certifications attest to its respect for natural resources and 
the environment. With overall revenues of approximately 200 million euros and 
the work of 200 employees, Kimbo is marketed in Italy through all distribution 
channels and abroad. Making Italian coffee known around the world and 
showcasing the particular qualities of Neapolitan espresso are two pillars in 
the company mission. The company operates with respect for people and the 
environment, to make a genuine, quality product, authentically made in Italy, 
available on national and international markets.
