Aracoop International

Export the social economy

Social economy enterprises can also open up to the world. The Aracoop Internacional support service facilitates the internationalization of cooperatives, foundations and associations, following the export dynamics that have already been adopted by many of our country’s companies.

If you have international potential, you need a foreign partner or are looking for customers in other markets, Aracoop Internacional will help you with the support of ACCIÓ’s Trade and Investment offices.

What does it offer?

It includes a series of actions that will be established according to the specific needs of each recipient company which, among others, may consist of:

  • Identification and selection of the most appropriate marketing channels.
  • Preparation of product suitability market studies.
  • Search for distributors and partners in the new market.
  • Detection of end customers.
  • Personnel selection at destination.
  • Support and guidance in the processes of accessing European (European Union) and multilateral (IDB and World Bank) funding, among others, by participating in the resulting projects, funds and initiatives.  
  • Roll-out abroad.


For those companies requiring advice before choosing the best destination for their products or services, ACCIÓ will help in prioritizing the markets with the greatest potential. Contact us to find out all the details!

Who is it for?

This service targets social economy companies based in Catalonia: cooperatives, foundations and associations with economic activity, labour associations, mutual societies, integration enterprises, special work centres and agricultural processing companies.

Applicant companies’ products or services must be consolidated in the market and the companies must be in a position to start an internationalization project.


This service does not involve any cost for the company. The service is valued at 9,600 euros and is funded by the Ministry of Business and Knowledge, through ACCIÓ, and the Ministry of Employment, Social Affairs and Family.
