Italy is taking part in the 35th edition of Salón Gourmets, a major event dedicated to the food and beverage specialties of Europe, held at the IFEMA exhibition complex in Madrid. The stand, set up by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry for Spain and featuring 14 Italian enterprises, was inaugurated by Italy’s Ambassador to Spain, Riccardo Guariglia, together with Spain’s Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Luis Planas, and Chamber of Commerce President, Marco Pizzi.
The Italian stand is the only foreign country stand at the exhibition: “Our constant presence at food and beverage events in Spain – the Ambassador said – proves that the institutions and the several players of Italy’s economic system want to continue to be present in a market that is very important for us. Through our presence we have given the Spanish people the opportunity to appreciate, throughout the years, the great variety of the Italian offer in this sector, which is strategic for us”. Salón Gourmets is an important meeting platform for professionals of the HORECA and distribution sectors and will be open to the public until 28 April.
