AUTHENTIC ITALIAN FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL

Miami, Maggio 2024

Presentazione:

Nel 2022 l’export italiano verso gli USA ha registrato una forte crescita (+12,7%) rispetto al 2021, con un valore 69 miliardi di dollari, il miglior risultato di sempre.

In questo contesto, lo Stato della Florida rappresenta il terzo mercato per valore delle importazioni di prodotti agroalimentari italiani, con un totale di 464 milioni di dollari nel 2022, in crescita del +14% rispetto al 2021. Crescite a doppia cifra si rilevano per il Vino (+17%), i Liquori (+114%), la Pasta (+42%), le Salse (+41%), i Formaggi (+19%) e il Caffè (+91%) (Fonte: ICE).

Una crescita da ricondursi, tra le altre cose, alla aumentata percezione di valori come qualità, genuinità e tracciabilità; elementi che i consumatori americani apprezzano sempre di più e ritrovano nei prodotti Made in Italy. Nello specifico, la Florida con i suoi 22 milioni di abitanti ed oltre 90 milioni di presenze turistiche annuali rappresenta un mercato in grande crescita e sempre più sofisticato.

La principale metropoli dello Stato, Miami, è diventata una delle capitali culinarie degli Stati Uniti con una presenza importante di ristoranti internazionali, celebrity chef, festival gastronomici e catene di gourmet markets specializzati in prodotti di nicchia, spesso italiani.

È proprio per dare visibilità alle eccellenze enogastronomiche italiane sull’importante piazza di Miami che la Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Southeast organizzerà, il prossimo 14 e 15 maggio, la quinta edizione dell’evento “Authentic Italian Food & Wine Festival”.

Circa 150 importatori, distributori, ristoratori e chef della Florida verranno invitati per due giornate di incontri, seminari, tasting di prodotti e networking con le imprese italiane.

Per le aziende italiane del Food & Wine è un’ottima opportunità di entrare in contatto con qualificate controparti commerciali, esplorare un mercato in grande crescita e testare i propri prodotti durante il Grand Tasting conclusivo che sarà aperto al pubblico di consumatori locali.

Il programma della quinta edizione del Authentic Italian Food & Wine Festival si articolerà come segue:

14 Maggio – ATTIVITÀ ORIENTATIVE

*  Incontro di orientamento: introduzione al mercato della Florida da parte di esperti di settore americani e testimonianze aziendali di imprese italiane già presenti sul mercato

*  Visita guidata gourmet market e punti vendita GDO di Miami

*  Cena di lancio ed incontro con autorità diplomatiche e alcuni importatori/distributori selezionati che verranno invitati a parlare dei trend di mercato

15 Maggio – ATTIVITÀ PROMOZIONALI E COMMERCIALI  

*  Seminari: incontro sul settore F&B sulle navi da crociera; incontro sulla ristorazione di alta qualità a Miami

*  Sessione Trade: incontri tra espositori e visitatori professionali presso area expo (trade only)

Grand Tasting: l’evento apre le porte ad un pubblico di food lover, e selezionati ristoranti, pasticcerie e gelaterie si uniscono in qualità di espositori offrendo assaggi ai visitatori. Una straordinaria opportunità di visibilità per testare e far conoscere i propri prodotti ai consumatori finali.

CAMPANIA WEEK FINEST FOOD AND WINE PRODUCTS

Campania, nestled in the heart of Italy, offers a unique blend of historical charm and natural beauty. With its stunning Amalfi coastline, ancient sites like Pompeii, and the energetic capital Naples, caters to every traveler’s desire. Campania is a paradise for food lovers, boasting renowned culinary delights. The variety of the territories and their biodiversity gave rise to some of the finest Italian food and wine products.

Campania enjoys plenty of sun, a vast sea briming with fish and scattered with islands, and an historically rich soil, especially at the base of Mount Vesuvio. These conditions contribute to the region’s biodiversity and ensure the flourishing of countless plants and the farming of animals, which lead to the richness of Campania’s culinary tradition. Indeed, besides being the birthplace of pizza, Campania is famous worldwide for its seafood, often paired with herbs, its cheeses, like the “mozzarella di bufala”, its olive oil, San Marzano tomatoes, and pasta. Beyond its gastronomic tradition, the region is equally renowned for its liquors, like limoncello, and wines. Some of the most prominent DOCG wines of the region, characterized by flavorful bodies and astonishing aromas, are: Greco di Tufo, Taurasi and Fiano di Avellino. The region also offers a variety of DOC wines, produced from indigenous grapes, like: Aglianico, Piedirosso, Falanghina, Biancolella, and Aspirinio.
