In 1975, a group of Spanish citrus fruit cooperatives joined forces in order to expand their product range, reach new markets and improve their bargaining power with large-scale distributors. They set up Anecoop, a second-tier cooperative or “cooperative of cooperatives”. Today Anecoop is the Mediterranean’s leading fruit and vegetable producer; the Spanish leader in marketing fruit, vegetables and salad stuffs; the world’s leading citrus fruit exporter and second largest marketer; Europe’s top watermelon and kaki supplier. The key to our success is our people; exemplified by the thousands of farmers working for Anecoop’s 79 member cooperatives and all the other staff that work for the Anecoop Group.
