For the first time, the USA Pavilion at TuttoFood has received the official endorsement of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The exhibit will be housed in an area that will bring together over 30 US companies, representing numerous American agro-food products.
TuttoFood officials said the endorsement by USDA represents a special and particularly satisfying acknowledgement since it is issued in accordance with stringent requirements of creating business opportunities. It represents further confirmation of the growing importance of TuttoFood as an international hub, thanks to its remarkable ability to bring suppliers and customers together in a targeted fashion and to anticipate market scenarios and consumer trends. TuttoFood becomes the first, and currently the only, USDA-certified agro-food event in Italy.
