Steps on the path to innovation

From the courage to face a new issue to the need to disseminate and share it.

Afuture is a business philosophy that has become integrating part of Autogrill Group mission in the latest years: to offer a quality service creating value in full compliance with all the different cultures and environments in which it operates.
Along the journey, it progressively yet firmly emerged that the Group made this choice conscious of its benefits. The Group is firmly committed to compliance with all the different cultures and environments where it operates, and the Group is now fully acknowledged in the market as a prominent and reliable operator vis-à-vis people and the planet. The experience accrued through Afuture has enabled the organization to mature and increasingly orient its people towards sustainability, understanding its core value and the results of a similar path, which is still continuing today, towards a new growth phase targeting the development of future strategies.
