The first consultancy services carried out by CAAB date back to the 1990s with the TACIS project for the construction of markets in Eastern Europe. CAAB has specific experience in the management of wholesale markets and, above all the integration of these with agricultural production systems and retail distribution companies. CAAB has acquired considerable experiences on renewable energies, logistic systems and looks with particular interest at the sustainable economy. The CAAB Project approach is a methodology that can be applied to any kind of project.  The methodology starts from PMP principles and is enriched with guidelines from our direct experience. The consulting activity carried out by CAAB aims not to re-propose its own model but to build with the customer a tailor made model created on specific needs. Most consulting services have, as their starting point, the daily market activity and the related services and market knowledge. CAAB is a point of reference for all Italian markets and is studied and visited by numerous foreign organizations. In 2019, 7 foreign organizations studied and analyzed our organizational model. Over the past 5 years, the CAAB has been visited by 28 foreign delegations.
