Fake and misleading news has spread regarding an alleged involvement of Spreafico in criminal proceedings for illegal recruitment and on the company going into administration.
"Today, we have received a notice from the Court of Milan saying that, following an investigation for illegal recruitment against representatives of the Consorzio Lavoro Più and Consorzio Servizi Integrati cooperatives (former logistic suppliers for our company), a Court administrator was appointed who will assess the relationship with the logistic companies working with our group. Spreafico, therefore, is not in administration and operations are proceeding regularly. The Board of Directors is still in charge and doing its work," reports the President of Spreafico.
The investigation follows a series of strikes carried out by the workers of the two cooperatives in 2020. The Consorzio Lavoro Più and Consorzio Servizi Integrati cooperatives were not and are not part of Spreafico.
"Spreafico has not been accused of the crime of illegal recruitment and an administrator was appointed precisely because the Company is detached from the cooperatives. It is a preventive measure. We have full trust in our judicial system and in the professional figure appointed."
Regarding the news of a seizure of money, we would like to point out that it has nothing to do with the provision of the Court and that it amounts to approximately €3 million, not the €6 million reported by the media. This was managed using the financial resources of the company and we are certain the proper operation of Spreafico will be recognized. This will not impact the regular continuation of our activities and the management of the relationships with our clients and suppliers.
The President of Spreafico Francesco & F.lli
