TUTTOFOOD evolving to serve the supply chain T he world of food is changing, and TUTTOFOOD, the Fiera Milano International Food Show, is changing with it. The next show, slated for May 8-11, 2017, in Milan, will feature a new approach, new image and new sectors, Fiera Milano said. "In the run-up to 2017," said Corrado Peraboni, CEO of Fiera Milano, "we will be creating new opportunities for exhibitors. We're extending the event concept through a strategy that completes and expands TUTTOFOOD, with new agree- ments and new areas of interest coming on stream. The most significant new development is that we have joined forces with Fruit Innovation, one of the brands from the Ipack-Ima stable; Ipack-Ima recently joined the Fiera Milano Group to create a single control room for supply chain events in the industry." The hallmark of TUTTOFOOD 2017 is a closer focus on the value of the enterprises at the fair. By pursuing a new rationalization-based approach, the event is becoming an agile, essential and structured platform capable of creating a solid framework around food and food values, the show's organizers said. The exhibition and international business aspects of the fair will be consolidated, with three new pavilions bringing total occupation to 12 pavilions. Among these new developments, fruit and vegetables will be amply represented through Fruit Innovation, the next iteration of an event staged previously by Ipack-Ima. Fiera Milano said it expects new synergies to be generated between fresh fruit and vegetable production and the distribution chain and sectors typically at the TUTTOFOOD event — for example, fresh produce and a whole basket of complementary sectors. In addition, a brand-new space is being set aside for TUTTOHEALTH, an event destined to raise the profile of companies that manufacture products for a specific target, the show's organizers said. The space is conceived to host important workshops and conferences. An ad hoc advisory panel will ensure that all of the topics on the agenda are handled thoroughly, professionally and usefully. At the heart of the debate is nutraceutics, the science of finding solutions and supporting health and disease prevention, combatting ailments such as celiac disease, allergies and food intolerance.
