Becoming part of the Consortium is a strategically important choice for any company looking to face the challenges of the market from a position of knowledge and strength, especially in terms of approaching the end consumer.

Companies in the sector can join by filing a membership request form. Once the eligibility conditions and compatibility with the objectives foreseen by the Consortium Articles of Association are verified, the Board of Directors decides whether or not to approve the Company’s membership request.
