Walmart Canada and COOP Italia are among largest retailers, respectively, in Canada and Italy. Joining forces in a partnership, they began defining a new way of how large retail organizations can do business – Collaborate vs. Compete. In this conference, CEO of COOP Italian Food North America Alberto Marrassini and Ivo Petroff of Walmart Canada, will discuss this partnership and its benefits for the consumer and for the future of the entire market. One of the reasons for the academic interest in this new model is that it represents a universal platform that allows for efficient access of small and medium sized, authentic Italian food manufacturers to large scale global markets. This is a mission-based model that builds the pillars of a new generation of global trade based on empowered participation, equal opportunities and access in a world where everything is possible.
