Froneri. A dynamic new global joint-venture in ice-cream and frozen food.
In October 2016, Nestlé and R&R successfully launched a new, joint-venture brand in the ice-cream, frozen food and chilled dairy sector. That brand is Froneri.
Froneri combines Nestlé and R&R’s ice-cream activities in Europe, the Middle East (excluding Israel), Argentina, Australia, Brazil, the Philippines and South Africa. It also incorporates Nestlé’s European frozen food business (excluding pizza and retail frozen food in Italy), as well as its chilled dairy business in the Philippines.
Today, Froneri operates in more than 20 countries across the world, employs around 12,500 people and we have our headquarters located in the UK. At the head of our business, the Froneri leadership team integrates unrivalled industry expertise and business acumen from across the Nestlé and R&R portfolios, with the Company’s board of directors being chaired by Luis Cantarell, (previously Nestlé Executive Vice President, Europe, Middle East and North Africa), while our CEO is Ibrahim Najafi (formerly CEO of R&R).
