Minerva Omega Group partners Gambero Rosso Academy in Rome

Gambero Rosso S.p.A. is a multimedia and multichannel platform in the Italian Wine Travel Food sector. With its initiatives, publications, guides, training, and national and international events, it is a reference point for promoting Italian fine food and wine. It provides a broad range of services for all sectors of the food supply chain, from the Italian agricultural sector to catering and hospitality.



Gambero Rosso Academy, based in Rome, is the multidisciplinary training centre that develops and runs professional courses for aspiring chefs, pastry chefs, pizzamakers, bakers and other sector workers, some in collaboration with prestigious Italian universities. Since 2021 it has also offered e-learning for professionals, businesses and enthusiasts through its Gambero Rosso University.

Italian food is a rich tradition to be protected and promoted just like its monuments, history, culture, music and art. Italian cuisine is the best known and loved in the world. With its 30 years in business, Gambero Rosso is committed to harnessing this immense value with its guides, events and training.

Minerva Omega Group has over 75 years' experience in food processing machinery and our core values have always been workers' safety, ease of use, guaranteed quality, a commitment to Italian production and construction and to its promotion around the world. 

The link between food and the machinery for processing it is so strong that we were naturally excited to accept the proposal from the Gambero Rosso editing team to become a partner of the Rome Academy, supplying some of our machines for teachers and students to use on its training and tasting courses.

The long-standing OMEGA brand, renowned from the '60s to late 2000, represented excellence in slicer manufacturing. Acquired and incorporated by La Minerva di Chiodini Mario in 2006, the addition of new organisational and production strategies led to the professional slicers line finding renewed commercial momentum as part of Minerva Omega Group, a union of the two manufacturers.

The AIRLESS VACUUM SYSTEM is a series of professional machinery and equipment designed for vacuum packing and storing food. Founded in 2017, it has gained major market shares thanks to centralised design and manufacturing at our Bologna premises (see
