Francesco Mutti (born October 1968, Parma) is an Italian company executive. Since 1994 he has been CEO of Mutti SpA, an Italian company founded in 1899, which specializes in preserved food, particularly in the tomato sector.[1][2][3]

Biography

Francesco Mutti graduated in Finance & Management from Cardiff University in 1993.[1][4]

In the following year, he was appointed CEO of Mutti SpA.[1][2][5] Under his guidance, from 1995 to 2011, the company’s turnover has increased from 11 to 185 million euro,[5] becoming the leader in Italy in 2013, and later also in Europe,[6] in the tomato paste, canned pulp and puree market.[7][8]

In 2000, Francesco Mutti created the “Pomodorino d’oro” award, dedicated to the company’s tomato suppliers who stand out for the quality of their products in the course of the year. The award financially rewards the suppliers’ commitment to guaranteeing product quality, respecting good production practices and giving attention to working conditions.[9] Over time, this initiative has raised the quality level of the supply chain, through initiatives such as the “High-Quality Agricultural Work Network”, supported by the Ministry of Agricultural Food and Forestry Policies and established to protect farms that promote compliance with labour standards.[10][11]

Under Francesco Mutti’s leadership, in 2001 the Group obtained the certification for the absence of GMOs in its products.[12] Moreover, thanks to a collaboration with Piacenza University's Faculty of Agriculture and the isotope-ratio mass spectrometry laboratory in Verbania, it discovered a scientific method to accurately identify raw material of Italian origin, with the aim of ensuring food safety and defending the Made in Italy mark.[13]

Other appointments

  • Since November 2018 he has been president of Centromarca, the association of Italian brands.[1][4][12]
  • Since 2016 he has been a WWF ambassador.[14]

Awards and recognitions

In 2015 he received the EY Businessman of the Year Award for the Food & Beverage section.[15]

Honours

Knight of Labour[16][17][18]
