Optima Group
Spreading the passion for the art of Italian artisan gelato and confectionery is the mission of Optima which, through the brands MEC3, Modecor, Giuso, and Pernigotti Maestri Gelatieri Italiani, is a leading player in over 150 countries worldwide through a widespread network of agents and distributors. MEC3 was founded in 1984 and is leader in the production of ingredients for artisan ice-cream production and confectionery. Together with Modecor Italiana – a reference company at European level in the production of decorations for pastry, acquired in November 2017 –, Giuso Guido S.p.A. – a company specializing in the production of compounds for gelato parlours and artisan pastry shops, acquired in May 2018 –, and Pernigotti Maestri Gelatieri Italiani – the symbol of Made-in-Italy confectionery since 1860, acquired in October 2019 – MEC3 forms a pole that represents the excellence of Made in Italy in the ice cream and pastry sectors at a global level.
