Champions of Export 2023, a selection made by Sole 24 Ore and Statista, is the list of the 250 Italian manufacturing companies that have stood out for their performance in exports. Among these companies, for the second consecutive year, there is also La Genovese, a historic Ligurian roasting company.
There are nine Ligurian SMEs that entered in the 2023 ranking “Export Champions”, a selection made by Sole 24 Ore and Statista. Among these, for the second consecutive year also La Genovese, unique Ligurian company in the food sector.
“Last year it was a real surprise for us to find ourselves among the companies with the highest percentage of exports – commented Alessandro Borea, CEO of the company. This year maybe we expected it a little, but it’s still a recognition that makes us very proud. Knowing that we are among the Italian companies with good exports is certainly a positive thing for us. Especially since we all come out of a dark period due to the long closures imposed by the pandemic. Despite this, in 2021, the reference year for the 2023 ranking, La Genovese increased its domestic turnover by 17% compared to 2020, the year of the long closures caused by Covid19“.
“This new recognition is the consolidation of a work that sees us present in a large part of the European market and expanding in other areas, which has been going on for almost thirty years” . Matteo Borea, La Genovese export manager, tells us. “Tradition, quality and product innovation capability are the key words of our success.”
“We enrich our selection with coffees from sustainable and organic farming and choose compostable or recyclable packs, pods and capsules. We believe that the quality of our coffee should no longer be recognized only by the aroma and taste, but also by the care we take to make it increasingly fair and sustainable” continues Alessandro Borea.
The ranking of 2023 export champions is an initiative created by Il Sole 24 Ore in collaboration with Statista, an international research and analysis company. For this edition, Italian companies with a turnover between 1.5 and 500 million euros were examined and only the products coming from Italian production centers and warehouses were considered as export activities, excluding the turnover coming from production centers located abroad.
