Our history has laid the foundations for the present – this is the story of our growth. The cooperative is not only proud of its history but also committed to a progressive future underpinned by the values with which it has always identified. This is what we stand for.
CIAB was founded in the same way as many other cooperatives in Emilia Romagna in the period after the Second World War. The venture was set up by the Chamber of Labour to help 14 willing participants, seeking new opportunities, to create a new company.
