SOMARO is a private, self-governing, non-profit, and politically independent Romanian association, founded at the private initiative of several partners in 2010.The organization promotes the idea of social supermarkets and helps to build up a chain of high quality shops in Romania.

The project is financed by sponsorship and volunteer work and it is independent of funding from the public sector.  It is the project’s goal that all of its social supermarkets become financially self-sufficient. SOMARO is based on a sustainable and valuable concept, and the entire SOMARO team aims to implement it in an efficient and economically viable manner. The more efficiently the enterprise is run, the more people can benefit from it.
