Fortifi: Food processing at its best





On July 1st, 2024, FORTIFI completes acquisition of LIMA company.


"LIMA creates efficient, high-quality equipment that is essential for secondary and further processing of proteins, especially poultry and pork," said Massimo Bizzi, Chief Executive Officer of Fortifi. "We are delighted to expand our capabilities in this essential area of food production, which continues Fortifi’s aggressive growth trajectory."


"We welcome the opportunity to serve customers beyond our current base as part of the Fortifi family," said Denis Le Guillou, President of LIMA. "We look forward to seeing our technology increase our customers’ profitability for an even broader range of global facilities."


FORTIFI company overview

We're here to do one big thing very well. Our relentless focus on automated food processing solutions makes us single minded and globally present. That's why Fortifi can visualize and deliver full-lifecycle automation solutions for the entire food industry.


We offer every aspect of the advanced technology necessary to set up a process and automate a plant. But our ultimate resource is our ability to understand what our customers need and to solve their real problems. Whether that requires tools, machines or a complete plant, we're ready.


The Fortifi purpose

Fortifi automated solutions transform the food processing industry with sustainable operational efficiency. As a leading strategic partner, we further our capabilities through strategic investment and prioritizing an employee and customer-driven culture. We prioritize innovation and safety while we create value for customers, society and investors.


Benefits of automation

Solve tomorrow's problems today. Manual processes alone can marginalize productivity and limit versatility. "The way it's always been done" leaves little room for new products, process innovation and improved efficiency. Now's the time to reexamine assumptions, break through obstacles and advance the food industry.


Automation makes sense in all types of manufacturing. It speeds up output, eliminates drudgery, and offsets the ebb and flow of the workforce. In food production, optimized environments enhance high-quality yields as well as safety, consistency and sustainability.


The inescapable extremes of complex food production environments make efficiency and safety difficult to achieve – without automation. Fortifi automates every aspect of operational efficiency, profitability and safety. Production efficiency respects the employee as well as the consumer and the bottom line. Automation takes the overwork out of production, and removes workers from tedium and risk at the same time that it speeds up output, eliminates contaminants and helps producers respond to new food trends.


Market segments served

Around the world and throughout the food-production industry, Fortifi can help increase efficiency and profitability. Our capabilities extend across all aspects of food production – and rather than try to serve every manufacturing sector, we're focused on food. Whether that's meat, poultry, seafood, fruits and vegetables, cheese, dairy, and more, we have the vision to configure complete automation solutions.
