Emerge is the only food platform that creates real business relationships between producers and buyers.


Our Mission

Emerge was born with the aim of simplifying and digitizing the development of new business opportunities between companies in the agri-food sector, food producers, retailers and the horeca world.


The offer

The main service provided by Emerge is the food trading platform, where the buyer from a retailer or from the horeca sector, publishes a need and receives requests from target producers, who already meet the required needs such as the sell-in price, volumes, certifications and packaging.


The advantages

The service can reach around 79'000 agri-food companies in Italy with a turnover of over 42 billion euros (sources Mipaaf). Compared to current solutions, Emerge is cheaper, faster and offers a quality showcase to producers and retailers. It also guarantees the privacy of registered companies and eliminates numerous barriers such as cultural, linguistic, geographical and brand awareness.


Business Model

Producers can upgrade to Premium service by paying an annual membership which allows them to:
  • access business opportunities all year round from their dashboard;
  • get more visibility on the platform. Premium producers are the first in the research list in Emerge;
  • access unique business acceleration opportunities at special conditions specially created by Emerge: Semina for financial collections; Hollyfood for marketing and communication; Food Passport for traceability of the production chain.
Update: February 4, 2020
