Lulu Group creates a hub for the export of Italian products (2020)


Investor company description 

Lulu Group International is a multinational conglomerate based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The group was founded in 1995 and has grown to become one of the fastest-growing retail chains in the world.

Lulu Group International operates a wide range of businesses across various sectors, including retail, hospitality, and real estate, with a strong commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. 

Investment description

Lulu Group chose Lombardy, precisely the Malpensa World Trade Center of Lonate Pozzolo, to establish its central food&beverage warehouse for the EMEA area.

The choice of Italy is not a coincidence: the group wanted to take advantage of the worldwide reputation of Italian food products for their quality and safety standards. 

The “Invest in Italy” team supported the company throughout the process of evaluating the best location for the new warehouse, establishing relationships with producers, farms and cooperatives for possible collaboration and dealing with all the legal matters.


Accompanying facilities required:

- Support for location scouting

-  Information on the rules for setting up in Italy

-  Support in the identification of possible professional interlocutors
