Emilia-Romagna is the Italian region with the highest number of cooperatives, with their historic tradition, longevity, number of members, controlled areas and centres of excellence.
Legacoop Emilia-Romagna represents this rich and dynamic network by developing its role and aspirations in connection with the territory, institutions, other associations representing enterprises, trade unions and voluntary service.
In a region where one resident out of two is a cooperative’s member, the challenge is to combine everyday policies with a long term and wide-ranging strategic and value-driven vision, by promoting new cooperative enterprises, especially in innovative sectors.
Legacoop Emilia-Romagna brings together 1.150 cooperatives with a total number of 141 thousand employees (89,9 % permanent contract).
It represents 2,9 million members and the production value is of € 26,4 billion.
Our cooperatives operate successfully in every sector.
