Duvel Moortgat Buys into Ducato

News: July 2017

Italian brewery Birrificio del Ducato has sold a minority shareholding (35%) to Belgian brewery Duvel Moortgat.

Ducato founders Giovanni Campari and Manuel Piccoli retain the majority holding and will remain at the helm of the Emilia-Romagna-based business but the Duvel Moortgat investment will help Ducato take its business forward without resorting to funding from banks.

Duvel Moortgat already owns companies such as Boulevard, Firestone Walker and Ommegang in the US, as well as Achouffe, De Koninck and Liefmans in Belgium.
