On the occasion of the inauguration of the new multifunctional space – which houses both the offices and the logistics warehouse – we discovered how it works and what lies behind e-commerce that connects consumers with farmers, breeders and artisan producers. A journey through environment, algorithms and taste
A new operational headquarters has progressed from a technological and environmental point of view and important goals have been achieved and are to be achieved by the end of 2022. How it works and what’s behind Cortilia, e-commerce born in 2011 that connects consumers with farmers, breeders and artisan producers and allows you to “shop like in the countryside”? We find out by visiting the company’s new headquarters just outside Milan, which was inaugurated last May.
A food tech company
The operation of Cortilia is simple: via the website or app you choose your groceries from more than 2500 products (from fruit to fresh seasonal vegetables, from fish to meat, from cold meats to dairy products to many other products such as wine and craft beer. , beauty products or household cleaning products). You always choose the desired delivery time on the app, you pay (by credit card, Paypal, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Edenred meal vouchers) and that’s it. Cortilia – present in 800 municipalities in northern Italy, including Milan, Turin and Bologna – describes itself as a “food-tech company”, explains Marco Porcaro, founder and CEO, because “it is a company that offers technology, service, product quality and craftsmanship, with a fundamental technical factor that makes it possible to offer customers food that fits their lifestyle, and to protect the environment, avoid surplus products and have a low impact on the environment, by automatically adjusting the vehicles to organize, many of which are electric, who make home deliveries”.
