The community has always been central to Conad’s activity. The company promotes a model of society in which people and their needs are important. Conad listens and gives concrete answers. It is a company for the community. One of the ways in which it goes about this is showcasing young talents. In the last nine years, Conad has joined forces with Umbria Jazz to promote a very special project: the Conad Jazz Contest.
