Coop Italia has reported a turnover of EUR12.5bn for 2015, and improved profitability.

Key points from the announcement

Coop strengthened its convenience strategy in 2015, as Italian shoppers become less loyal to one format and continue to hunt for convenience opportunities. It said participation in Coopernic is generating significant cost savings for the business, while its private label brands are having a positive impact on sales. Coop is still growing its member base and now has more than 8.5 million members.

Focus on innovation will continue

Coop Italia president Marco Pedroni said the retailer would relaunch its 'good and safe food for all' strategy to meet the needs of struggling consumers. This will include a continuation of the focus on convenience and private label. Having launched the store of the future in 2015, Mr Pedroni said work on innovation would be ongoing.
