– Thousands of business appointments organised thanks to the supply and demand matching platform
– Highly appreciated by exhibitors and operators alike is the new exhibition concept reflecting the approach of organised distribution, with the three macro-areas Fresh, Packaged FMCG and Frozen-fish
– Over 150 events of high standing and great media coverage
Milan, 19 May 2023 – One of the most well-attended editions since the inception of TUTTOFOOD comes to a close, with over 83,000 trade visitors registered, with 20% of them coming from 132 different countries. The largest groups came, in order, from Spain, the USA, France, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, China, Romania, Poland and the UK, but delegations from all five continents were also present: from Vietnam to Canada, from the Faeroe Islands to Paraguay and Kazakhstan.
Four days of intense exchanges, with thousands of business meetings organised thanks to the matching platform between the brands and selected buyers, also with the cooperation of ITA/ICE Agency. There were also numerous journalists and influencers from Italian and foreign media, both traditional and innovative.
In particular, the new exhibition style was greatly appreciated by both exhibitors and operators: the macro-areas that brought together the vertical sectors by supply chain affinity, reflecting the logic of distribution – Fresh, packaged consumer goods and Frozen-fish – have simplified the format and the visual experience is very effective, facilitating the exploration and discovery of new brands and new products.
New products were more present this year than ever before, with lots of innovation in terms of sustainability, packaging and processes, new recipes that anticipate trends and respond to growing consumption needs – from plant-based to protein-rich products – and high-service formats that meet the demand for convenience for today’s lifestyles.
Sustainable innovation was also celebrated by the second edition of the Better Future Award, which saw over 50 entries. There were several neck-and-neck finishers among the award winners this year, reflecting the high overall quality of the products submitted.
Sharing knowledge as well as business, online and offline
There was also a great response to the more than 150 events, including TUTTOFOOD events and events organised by exhibitors. Particularly popular this year were the show-cooking sessions with great Italian and international chefs, organised in cooperation with Ambasciatori del Gusto, APCI, Assitol and Federcarni.
Attention to the event is also growing on social networks, with more than 1.8 million people reached, over 8.1 thousand interactions (on the four reference platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn) and over 800 thousand views for Instagram stories alone.
Thanks to the alliance between Fiera Milano and Fiere di Parma, from this year Cibus and TUTTOFOOD will create an even more strategic platform, with a European dimension, that will even more effectively support companies wishing to focus on internationalisation to grow their business.
The next event will take place in Parma from 7 to 10 May 2024. The tenth edition of TUTTOFOOD is at fieramilano from 5 to 8 May 2025.
