Fiorucci Foods Changes Name to Campofrio Food Group America

Fiorucci Foods Inc., a maker of Italian specialty meats at a plant in Chesterfield County, has changed its name to Campofrio Food Group America.

Founded in Italy in 1850, Fiorucci Foods Inc. became part of the Campofrio Food Group in 2011. Based in Madrid, Spain, Campofrio is Europe’s largest maker of processed meats.

Fiorucci products will continue to be sold under the Fiorucci brand name and the firm’s U.S. headquarters will remain in Chesterfield, the company said. The local plant on Ruffin Mill Road produces meats such as prosciutto and salami.

Campofrio said it plans to “utilize and invest in the existing production facilities and distribution platform developed by Fiorucci Foods to introduce its European specialties to the American market.”
