Digital baby gift registries, products for pregnant women and babies in a single place: two major Italian groups have joined forces to create an e-commerce platform to make family life easier and more sustainable.
Rome/Cogliate (MB), November 2, 2022 – Angelini Consumer and Prénatal have announced the launch of iMammaShop, the new e-commerce platform entirely dedicated to expectant mothers, new parents and families with children. Building on the experience of two major Italian groups, Angelini Industries, of which Angelini Consumer forms part, and PRG Retail Group, of which Prénatal is one of the main brands, iMammaShop is an innovative digital store created to satisfy the wishes and needs of parents and families both before and after the birth of a new baby and during their early years.
From pregnancy and the creation of a baby gift registry - increasingly shared with friends, aunties, uncles and grandparents - iMammaShop participates in the life of the family with the aim of making it easier and more sustainable, offering a catalog of Prénatal high quality products, ranging from childcare items to clothing and toys. The catalog also includes products from Angelini Industries (personal care and hygiene products) and the Lovely Mind educational toys created by Angelini Consumer and Fondazione Montessori Italia with the aim of aiding the cognitive development of children from 0 to 36 months.
“iMamma Shop is an additional step forward in terms of meeting the expectations of new parents, providing them with the support and information they need during the wonderful and unique journey of pregnancy and the birth of their children, whilst also offering them a digital shopping experience” commented Francesco Tortora, Chief Executive Officer of Angelini Consumer. “The presence of Angelini Industries in this sector, strengthened by its major partnership with Prénatal, also aims to send out a message of optimism and support for young families at a time of declining birthrates”.
“Being a reassuring presence, a reliable source of help for the growth of families and children, is the goal of Prénatal and of all PRG Retail Group brands” – said Massimo Arioli, Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer of PRG Retail Group – “At this particularly challenging time for Italian parents, it is even more important to develop alliances and tangible projects to offer people innovative and high-quality omnichannel solutions at affordable prices. The partnership with Angelini Consumer represents a positive synergy between Italian companies that have joined forces to provide customers with an increasingly effective service”.
The platform, which can be very easily accessed by creating a personal profile at https://shop.imamma.it, is a further evolution of iMamma, the Angelini Consumer application dedicated to new families and already consulted by over 180,000 users in Italy. It will be managed by a new company that is 60% owned by Angelini Consumer and 40% by Prénatal.
