The governing council of Spanish cooperative and supermarket chain Covirán has elected José Antonio Benito Díaz as its new president.

Benito Díaz has been a member of the governing council of Covirán since 2018 and took over as the vice-president of the cooperative in June of last year.

He operates two stores in the province of Toledo and has been an active member of Covirán since 2010, the group said.

He takes over from Patro Contreras, who resigned for personal reasons, after almost four years as the head of the cooperative, although she will continue to be part of the council itself.

Focus On Competing In A Complex Market

Benito Díaz indicated that his priorities will be to prepare Covirán to compete in a complex market, culminate its digital and cultural transformation, and optimise all processes and resources to offer the best service to members and customers.

He stated, "In the future of Covirán, we all count – both partners and employees – to continue fulfilling our mission – to provide customers with the best solution in local purchases, while also giving back to society the best of us as a model of social economy. Our history is a source of pride, but our future is even more promising."

In July of this year, the Spanish proximity retail cooperative closed its 2021 financial year with gross sales amounting to €1.64 billion, down 3.5% on the previous year.
