16-12-2020

(WorldKings.org) According to Statista, Coop Italy is the most popular food retailer brand in Italy. Coop Italia topped the ranking with 13.4% market share as of 2019

Coop is a system of Italian consumers' cooperatives which operates the largest supermarket chain in Italy. Its headquarters are located in Casalecchio di Reno, Province of Bologna.

 

 

The first cooperative shop was established in Turin in 1854. Its purpose was to defend the purchasing power of consumers: first of all the quality was verified, the goods were then purchased from the wholesalers and finally sold to the shareholders at cost price.

 

 

The year 1967 sees the birth of Coop Italia, a national buying consortium for all Italian consumer cooperatives, whose creation meant greater bargaining power with suppliers.

Between 2000 and 2010, Coop continues to expand and becomes the main player in Italy’s organised large-scale retail market sector.

 

 

Coop's system operates with 115 consumers' cooperatives of various sizes (9 large, 14 medium, and 92 small), with 2,100 stores, 59,900 employers, more than 7,429,847 members, and an annual revenue of €12.9 billion.

According to Statista, Coop Italy is the most popular food retailer brand in Italy. Coop Italia topped the ranking with 13.4% market share as of 2019.
