Descripción del expositor

Agri-Food Centre of Bologna, Italy

CAAB is a large structure established in the spirit of innovation in order to give continuity to Bologna’s longstanding trade tradition.
CAAB hosts the Fruit and Vegetable Market - one of the major distribution facilities in Italy - as well as warehouses for refrigerated and frozen products, covered logistic platforms, offices and support facilities.
CAAB presents itself not only as a modern logistic-commercial platform, but also as a center for advanced food industry services. Due to its strategic location, the functionality of its structures, the presence of major businesses, as well as the high quality level of market services and products marketed, CAAB - the Agri-Food Centre of Bologna - is one of the most important wholesales in Italy and Europe in the fruit and vegetable sector.
The high computerization available in the structures of the Agri-Food Centre allows for maximum efficiency in the internal logistics activities. CAAB is perfectly connected to the national and city road system thanks to the proximity to the urban area and the main Italian highways.
Since 2012, the management company CAAB Spa has redefined its strategy by starting the FICO World Eataly project as well as the construction of the NAM - New Market Area - home to the Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market. The new strategy has been entirely based on environmental sustainability and on the quality of the services and products offered.
NAM has been operational since April 2016 and has been developed to provide fast and efficient logistics services. NAM occupies 45,000 square meters and is served by a centralized load shed of about 4,000 square meters. CAAB also operates 27,000 square meters of facilities for logistics, warehousing and services trade, as well as 5,000 square meters of office space plus a large drop-off point.

CAAB green agenda, energy and sustainability
CAAB is fully committed to economic and environmental sustainability and uses the “clean” energy generated by its roof photovoltaic installations which are the largest in Europe: they cover an area of 100,000 square meters with a production of 11 million KWh. There are future plans to build photovoltaic canopies even in parking areas, which will lead to a further increase of 3,000,000 kWh (i.e. additional 15,000 panels to cover 30,000 square meters).
In terms of logistics and operational systems, NAM, is the most advanced European Fruit and Vegetable Market: it offers more than 50,000 square meters of factories and offices completely sustainable from an energy point of view, equipped with the latest ITC, anti-seismic and fire technologies. Endowed with Wi-Fi and fiber optics, with LED and low consumption lighting, NAM is heated thanks to heat pumps and is equipped with over 10,000 square meters of new cold storage facilities with low energy impact.

Quality of services and products
CAAB is a frame of reference at European level for the wholesale distribution in terms of quality, security and sustainability.
CAAB is the only wholesale market in Europe holding both an ISO 9001 certification as well as a product certification
issued by the international SGS institution.
