company profile

>> Dedicated to offering the best coffee in the world, illy directly
sources the highest-quality Arabica coffee beans. There are nine
distinct Arabica beans in the illy blend.

i

llycaffé will celebrate its 85th

anniversary next year of offering people the greatest coffee in
the world, just as Francisco Illy
dreamed when he founded the company in 1933 in Trieste, Italy. "Every
year is important and there is a great

56

effort in place to make sure
that our growth falls along
with continuous quality improvement," Chairman and
President Andrea Illy says.
"We put great effort to make
sure our growth is triggered
by quality and not the other
way around."
A third-generation company, illy is available today
in more than 145 countries
and in more than 100,000
of the world's finest restaurants, cafés, hotels and retail
outlets that serve more than
seven million cups of illy per
day. "I grew up hearing about
coffee," Illy says. "It's my life,
and I didn't see any reasonable alternative. The company was shaped around the
dream to offer the very best
coffee in the world - a very
romantic dream in a sense
because offering is better
than selling or distributing
or serving."
illy directly sources the very best-quality
Arabica coffee beans from farmers in
20 growing regions in nine countries
on four continents. Every second of
every day, 20,000 illy beans are sorted in a sustainable and certified supply chain with quality ensured in each
bean through 10 different criteria.
There are nine distinct Arabica beans
in the illy blend.

Andrea Illy, chairman and president:
"We put great effort to make sure our
growth is triggered by quality and not
the other way around."

In the United States, illy is sold at
major retailers including William
Sonoma, Bed, Bath and Beyond, Amazon and Sur La Table. It is also sold
through partnerships with JW Marriott and Le Meridian hotels and can
be found in grocery stores such as
Public, Kroger, Wegmans, Shoprite,
Ralphs and Whole Foods Market.
"We have made a few organizational changes last year in order to
have better execution in the marketplace," Illy says. "We hired a new
CEO, Massimiliano Pogliani, in May
2016. I decided to only be the chairman and not CEO. Pogliani is external to the family and will be fine-tuning the organization, salesforce and
marketing to position us to be even
better in terms of quality of product.
It's an evolution of the company to
prepare ourselves for bigger things.
He is an expert in coffee and an expert in super premium brands."

Best of the Best
illycaffé in 2016 established the

Coffee Award, hosted at the United
Nations and dedicated to recognizing
