Who
We Are

Coop Italian Food is the international branch of Coop Italy created to export the excellence of Italian food worldwide.

Set up in 2015, Coop Italian Food provides the most powerful and reliable network currently operating in Italy able to guide its partners through the complexity of the Italian Food market and build an authentic Made in Italy food programme.

The group has grown rapidly and today it operates across Europe, North America, and the Middle and Far East in more than 18 countries, with Headquarters in Italy, a branch in the USA and a network of agents that operate in various Middle/Far Eastern countries and Australia.

The strength of the group has its roots in the mother company Coop, the first among Italian retailers with a history of over 160 years behind it.

From the very beginning, the goal of the cooperative was to buy wholesale and resell consumer staples at cost price to its members, to protect consumer purchasing power.

Price competitiveness and high attention to quality are the core of Coop strategy and its success. Today, Coop Italian Food offers its clients this experience and know-how.
