About this coop:

The Federation of Cooperation in Trentino promotes the development of the cooperative movement, coordinates and enhances the activities of cooperatives, and helps direct their actions to most effectively respond to the needs of the most vulnerable groups in society in the spirit of cooperation and mutuality. In this way the Federation aims to contribute to enhancing the human condition, promoting moral and civil growth, and fostering the social and economic progress of the people in the province of Trento.

More than two hundred and twenty seven thousand individuals, in a population of approximately five hundred thousand inhabitants in Trentino, are members of cooperatives. This means that two families in every three are involved in the cooperative movement.
Not only that! If the number of existing cooperatives, a few more than six hundred, is compared with the number of municipal areas, 217, it is easy to understand how widespread the presence of the cooperative movement is in Trentino communities.
The extended entrenchment throughout the territory and its presence in almost all sectors of economic activity, with peaks of excellence at a national level, make Trentino a true “cooperative district” like few others in the world.
The Federazione Trentina della Cooperazione (Federation of Cooperation in Trentino) is the only official organization of its kind that represents, assists, protects and oversees the cooperative movement in the province of Trento.
