These machines are designed to meet the needs of Italian and foreign customers in a unique way. In particular, innovation manifests itself in a spasmodic attention to the creation of value along the customer's supply chain. This know-how is shared through the creation of an open company Academy also outside". Alessandra and Riccardo Cavanna, CEOs of Cavanna S.p.A., collected the prize.
The jury proclaimed Donnafugata S.p.A. as the absolute winner. Special mention also for: Mantero Spa (internationalization), Idea Spa (young entrepreneur), Molino Rossetto (History and tradition), Diemme Industria Caffè Torrefatti S. P. A (Small Business), Fratelli Polli Spa (opening of the capital), M.E. Marittima Emiliana Spa (women in command), Globalpesca Spa (Brothers in command).
"The Italian business world consists of 82% from family businesses, of which 97% have fewer than 20 employees, and each year are over sixty thousand entrepreneurs involved in the generational transition. – Declares Professor Claudio Devecchi, sole administrator and scientific director of CERIF – During the eighth edition of the prize, the Cerif has once again had the honor of rewarding companies that have proven themselves more virtuous in a delicate moment of generational change. Many of them are already in the fifth generation, some even at the seventh. The continuity of the succession appears as one of the most difficult and crucial problems of the family business, not underestimate it is the first step to face it at best".

Cavanna continues to grow globally. Following last year's expansion of our Italian headquarters located in Prato Sesia, on Tuesday, October 24th, the inauguration of the Jundiaí (São Paulo) factory took place.
Cavanna has been present in Brazil with a subsidiary since 2004. Since automatic lines are occupying more and more space, it has become necessary to find a more sophisticated and better equipped facility.
Over 70 customers were present at the event, representing the major local companies. Cavanna presented our approach to correctly and fully measure the benefits of a project, calculating the Total Cost of Ownership of a plant.
The new office has a more modern and spacious structure than the previous one. There are 3800mq divided between administrative, technical, commercial, production and testing offices. The facility employs a total 43 people with 2016 sales of about 5 million euros.
The plant will be the productive point of reference for the local market, for South America, but also for the rest of the world as it is able to develop solutions for primary, secondary and end-robotized packaging.
