Italy Signs on as Partner Country for Summer Fancy Food Show
This summer, the Fancy Food Show will celebrate one of the most popular food staples in the United States: Italian cuisine. Italy will bring its best in classic specialty food and on-trend new products from all regions of the country to the summer show as partner country sponsor.
This marks the first time the show organizer, the Specialty Food Association, has engaged a partner country sponsor for the event, which is the largest marketplace devoted exclusively to specialty food and beverages in North America. The show runs June 28–30, 2015, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.
Italy has long been the largest international exhibitor at the event, and this summer, the exhibit halls will be filled with more than 325 companies from across Italy with specialties from nearly every region. "We are very proud to be the first partner country for the Summer Fancy Food Show," says Donato Cinelli, president of Universal Marketing, organizer of the Fancy Food Show's Italian Pavilion. "We consider it a prestigious recognition of all the efforts that Italian food producers put into their products, and the quality and excellence of the food they are bringing to the global marketplace."
