In 2023, all the main markets in which the Group operates experienced growth compared to 2022.

Notably, in the United States, a key market in the Group’s growth strategy, revenues surged by +15.1% at constant exchange rates, primarily driven by the online channel.

From a channel perspective, growth was predominantly propelled by Ho.Re.Ca. (+8.2% compared to 2022), supported by a positive acquisition rate of new customers, and by online sales (+15.5% compared to 2022), owing to strong performance from e-Tailers, particularly in Italy, the United States, and China.

In 2023, the Group remained committed to its sustainability strategy, encompassing every stage of the value chain, from coffee producers to end consumers, through initiatives supporting local communities and embracing sustainable practices such as regenerative agriculture. Furthermore, in 2023, illycaffè renewed its commitment to the circular economy by promoting  environmentally friendly processes and responsible resource and material management through various capsule recovery and recycling initiatives.

On October 1st, to commemorate International Coffee Day, Arabica Selection Brasile Cerrado Mineiro was launched, representing the first coffee sourced entirely from regenerative agriculture.

Based on the achievements in 2023, illycaffè anticipates continued revenue growth and accelerated profitability for 2024, notwithstanding the complexities of the current macroeconomic and geopolitical landscape.
