OCCHIOBELLO, Rovigo, Italy – When tradition meets innovation, then progress is born. And that is exactly what happened in 2010, when Alessandro Garbin took over IMF. Coming from a family with 100-years’ experience in raw coffee, he managed to increase the company’s value tenfold with its sensitivity and experience in the coffee sector.

Under its management IMF goes from 4 to 38 current employees (of which 3 hired during the last year), manages to bill 10 million euros in 2020, with an average annual growth of 40%, and continues to expand internationally and nationally, bringing equally weighed new market shares. All of this made possible thanks to the positive participation climate that employees breathe, continuously growing both as individuals and professionals.

But this is not the only reason making IMF a leading player in the market…

IMF demonstrates excellence in technology, research and development

Managing to mix family values such as craftsmanship with the latest innovation features with which each plant is designed. Its flagship products are coffee roasters ranging from 1kg up to 480kg, equipped with the latest generation Galileo software that guarantees traceability, reliability, precision and efficiency.

On the other hand, as Alessandro Garbin explains: “our machines are able to take out the most of the coffee characteristics, managing to keep emissions well below European limits, without resorting to expensive external abatement systems such as catalyst”.
