The 2021 edition of TuttoFood, Italy’s biggest food and beverage fair, will soon open in Milan. The city is once again in the spotlight, only a month after the Salone del Mobile design fair and the Milan Fashion week, that attracted visitors from all over the world.
This year’s edition of TuttoFood, that was not held in 2020 due to the pandemic, will take place from 22 to 26 October. The five-days fair, long-awaited by professionals in the agri-food sector, will include many events and exhibitions.
The novelty of this year at the FieraMilano event facility will be the simultaneous holding of both TuttoFood and HostMilano, an important exhibition dedicated to the hospitality and tourism sector. The organizers presented the events at a press conference held in Milan on 29 September under the slogan “better together”.
Luca Palermo, managing director of FieraMilano, Carlo Ferro, president of the Italian Trade Agency and Giovanni Andrea Toselli, president and managing director of PwC Italia, took part in the meeting with the press.
“In 2021, Italian exports have already exceeded pre-pandemic levels. By 2023, they will reach a total value of €532 billion euros. Food and hospitality remain key sectors of Italy’s economy” said Mr. Toselli. .
Meat-Tech, an exhibition dedicated to meat processing technologies, will also be held jointly with TuttoFood. The exhibition will include the best technologies and intelligent materials for the processing of meat and food in general and their packaging.
This year, the organizers of TuttoFood decided to dedicate the fair not only to food and the food industry, but also to other industries connected to it, such as hospitality, tourism, and food technologies, that have always represented important components of Italy’s economy.
Thanks also to the support of the Italian Trade Agency, more than 2,000,000 exhibitors from 40 foreign countries and 1,800 international buyers are expected to attend the five-days event.
The fair aims to be an opportunity for economic operators to learn more about innovations and future trends in the food sector. The program includes activities such as presentation events, conferences and various cooking- shows.
