History of Parmalat

The history of Parmalat can be divided into four main periods:

  • The period of the old Parmalat which started in 1961 and ended in December 2003 with the outbreak of the financial scandal.
  • Starting from December 2003, Parmalat and numerous other companies of the old Group are admitted to the Extraordinary Administration procedures. During this period the Restructuring Plan of the Parmalat Group and the Composition with Creditors, which was an integral part of the Plan, have been prepared. The Composition with Creditors established a separate legal entity, the "new" Parmalat S.p.A., in which starting from October 1, 2005 are included 16 companies of the former Parmalat Group.¹
  • The “new” Parmalat S.p.A. has been listed on the Italian Stock Exchange since October 6, 2005.
  • Since July 15, 2011 Parmalat S.p.A. is controlled by the Lactalis Group which at the time of the takeover bid owned about 83% of the company’s share capital.
