MILAN, Italy – The seventh edition of Tuttofood, an increasingly international hub and global player for a strategic sector for the Italian economy such agri-food, closed yesterday evening. A systemic role underlined by the institutional presence of the Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and of the Minister of Agriculture, Food, Forestry and Tourism Gian Marco Centinaio.
82,551 operators were present, 21% of whom were foreigners from 143 countries, with 12 new entries (in particular from Central America, the Middle East and North Africa) who met the 3,079 Italian and international brands present at the event.
The first 10 foreign countries of origin are, in order, the USA, Spain, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, China, Canada, the Benelux, Japan and the Russian Federation. The delegations of buyers were important and appreciated, also thanks to the fine tuning made with ITA/ICE Agenzia. There are more than 1,414 accredited Italian and foreign journalists and 325 bloggers.
There were also large numbers of visitors to the more than 250 side events of the exhibition, such as those dedicated to the blockchain, retail and food intelligence.
In the pavilions and in the stands, exhibitors displayed traditional products alongside new superfood products, in a context characterized by a strong return to the use and enhancement of valuable raw materials. An edition based on quality food and product innovation, but also on health, proper nutrition and sustainability.
