TUTTOFOOD is a trade show to keep a close eye on, because it’s only on its seventh edition and has registered such massive numbers. The inaugural edition was first held in 2007 and has been a surefire hit since the beginning. Its influence is particularly felt considering it’s held only once per two years. We also want to emphasise on the support TUTTOFOOD receives from the government of Italy as Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and the Minister of Agriculture, Food, Forestry and Tourism Gian Marco Centinaio were both official guests last edition. Part of the reason why Fiera Milano is filled with so many visitors again and again is due to the full product overview, which features every food category - organic food, coffee, fruit and vegetables, bread and pasta, frozen foods, meat and milk products, diet food and sauces.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
TUTTOFOOD is still going and still opening itself to outside brands, which is why 84% of brands and 77% of all trade visitors are still Italian nationals rather than foreigners, but that is improving consistently. Just last edition saw new participation from regions like the Middle East and Central America, for instance. In terms of who visits, the answer is complicated. You have a great variety of professional backgrounds in attendance. Italian importers of foreign products, foreign importers of Italian products, buyers for national and international large-scale retail along small and medium retail chains, Ho.Re.Ca representatives, buyers for catering chains, restaurant, hotel, bar, canteen and wine shop managers, wholesalers and distributors, travel catering buyers, shopping centre buyers, specialty food shop buyers, distribution platform managers. The list goes on.
