La Genovese was included among the 200 companies of “Export Champions 2022“, a selection made by Il Sole 24 Ore and Statista.
“Export Champions 2022“, a selection made by Il Sole 24 Ore and Statista, is the list of 200 Italian manufacturing companies that have distinguished themselves for the export performances. Among these companies there is also La Genovese, an historic Ligurian roasting company, which ranked 177 in the national ranking, 13th in the food sector, one of the seven Ligurian companies in the ranking.
“For us it was a real surprise to find ourselves among the 200 companies with the highest export rate – commented Alessandro Borea, CEO of the company. It is an unexpected recognition that makes us very proud, especially considering the situation of the last two years where anything was all other than simple, especially for companies of our sector, with the closure for prolonged periods of bars, cafes and restaurants in almost all of Europe as well as in the rest of the world “.
“This recognition is the reward of a long work, which has been going on for almost 30 years – says Matteo Borea, export manager of La Genovese – which has oriented our strategies towards exports. Tradition, quality and product innovation capacity are the keywords of our success. In the company we do not just select the best coffees from all over the world, but we study and travel to visit other countries with a different coffee culture“.
“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. This is why we choose compostable or recyclable packs, pods and capsules, and enrich our selection of coffees from those from sustainable and organic agriculture.
Choices that perhaps have been better understood abroad and have proved to be rewarding, allowing us to also impose ourselves on the foreign market, which reached 44% of our turnover in 2020.”
The ranking of 2022 “Export Champions” is an initiative created by Il Sole 24 Ore in collaboration with Statista, an international research and analysis company. For this first edition, over 9,000 companies were analyzed with the aim of identifying the main Italian exporting companies in 2020 and rewarding Italian companies with positive performances in various industrial sectors.
