For maximum effectiveness and sharing of commercial choices, working groups have been formed with the participation of headquarters staff and partner companies staff.

  • The Commercial Committee: is the guidance, coordination and commercial control body, led by Agorà Network Goods Manager and composed of the Commercial Directors of the member companies. It reports directly to the Board of Directors and defines, on the basis of the strategic directions received, the guidelines for the category committees, which are in charge of the operational implementation of all the policies defined.
  • The Category Committees: are eleven working groups, divided by product category (Grocery, Cold, Perishable), consisting of a buyer or a headquarters coordinator and the Category Managers or buyers of the partners. They meet regularly, sharing information and evaluating market opportunities, managing the maintenance of the assortments and promotional activities, assessing the suppliers to establish partnerships, outside the scope of intervention of ESD Italia, by entering into the relative agreements.
