Romagnoli storia

Anni 20

Romagnoli Farms was founded in 1928 in Castel D’Aiano, in the Bolognese Appenines.
Its founder, Natale Romagnoli, who had emigrated to the United States at a very young age, returned to Italy and invested in the farm, which he ran with his family. The land was perfect for growing potatoes, and over the years the farming know-how gained and the willingness to try new varieties imported from northern Europe made the food and seed potato markets grow. The farm offered them for sale to agricultural consortiums throughout Italy.


anni 1945

World War II tragically interrupted the farm's growth (the area was occupied by the front), and in 1945 the war's end coincided with the sudden transfer of ownership from father to children.


anni 50

Giuseppe Romagnoli, the youngest son, moved the headquarters to Bologna in the 1950s.
Romagnoli expanded the trade and export of a variety of fruits and vegetables and developed the selection and study of new varieties of potatoes in collaboration with Holland.


anni 60 70

By the '60s and '70s, Romagnoli had become a well-established company with numerous employees, performing processing and marketing operations and offering services in the fruit and vegetable sector.


anni 80 90

The Company has specialized in potatoes since the '80s and '90s, with the identical strategy of partnership and building of long-term relations and value.
Romagnoli directly runs and coordinates production, invests in the chain, participates in and contributes to the success of interprofessional systems in the Emilia Romagna Region, and promotes organized systems to guarantee the improvement and adequate added value of potatoes.


Anno 2013

The Company's headquarters collaborates with modern facilities that process, pack, and store agricultural products, including a state-of-the-art building opened in 2013 in Molinella (BO). It has strengthened its networks of employees and partner companies in various areas of Italy, Europe, and the world.
Romagnoli's close collaboration with partners in central and northern Europe has allowed it to know and anticipate new consumer trends on the potato market, which the Company then transfers to the production and modern distribution sector in the form of product and process innovations.
