Founded in the '30s by the fishermen of Goro for the management of the fish market, the Copego took over in 1970, the current connotation of companies, including several local cooperatives. The experiments conducted in collaboration with the University of Ferrara, which led to the launch farming of mussels and clams date from those years.
This activity has given excellent results, so that by the late 80s, the Consortium has achieved the leadership in the shellfish industry. The Copego currently has the participation of over 581 members (with a number of fishing enterprises amounted to 400), divided into several categories of fishing and trade, and markets its products on national and European levels (Spain, France and Germany).
The Consortium is responsible for all phases of the supply chain, from production to marketing. Our company is growing and in recent years it has greatly increased its turnover. Most of the turnover comes from the production and processing of clams, mussels and other shellfish in general.
