Despar Italia Launches 100% Italian Sugar Brand

Despar Italia has launched its own 'classic' 100% Italian sugar brand, in collaboration with Italia Zuccheri, a brand operated by the Coprob cooperative.

With Italian sugar production gradually decreasing, the retailer has chosen to collaborate with Coprob, the only fully Italian supplier in this sector, in order to relaunch national production of sugar.

With this collaboration, Despar Italia wants to valorise the Italian supply chain, guaranteeing quality, Italianness and environmental sustainability.

Some 7,000 companies are involved in the sugar supply chain in Italy.

The cultivation of sugar beets also has advantages from an environmental point of view as it enriches the land for the next crops.
