A supermarket chain with a conscience? Amazingly, Italy’s Coop organisation is exactly that. It is the largest supermarket chain in Italy, and the staff embrace all kinds of community work, from looking after society’s less well-off members to making sure that elderly Italians living alone get emotional support along with their shopping delivery. Not only that, but the company invests profits in environmental development and a number of schemes to provide support to families and communities. An extraordinarily selfless organisation flourishing in a world of global greed.
