MasterChef Italy Srl announces Company Name Change

MasterChef Italy Srl (formerly Render Image Srl) announced today that it has changed its name to Specifi LLC to reflect a new global brand and new ownership structure. The name change is the first step in the company’s expansion plans into the North American market.

In August 2015, Wolters-Althoff Investments (WAI) acquired the global MasterChef software and services business from Render Image Srl. At the same time the business changed its legal name to Specifi LLC, headquartered in Chicago, IL and introduced a new brand and mark. The business, now known as Specifi, LLC, will continue to have a substantial presence in Venice, Italy, and operate within Europe, the Middle East and Africa as Specifi Europe Srl.

Specifi LLC will continue to operate under the same customer focused principles that were instilled over 10 years ago when the company was founded and delivered the first version of MasterChef now known as Specifi. Founder Luca Salomoni said: “While the name of the Company will change, the product and operational leadership that got us to this place not only continues, but are enhanced as we as we enter the next chapter in our story”

The investment of WAI will allow Specifi to increase the rate of innovation it brings to the market and expand globally throughout Asia, South America and North America.
