Encouraging news are coming for the made in Italy food. It might be the consequence of the Expo, or the economic upturn, the good news is that during the first six months of this year the exports in the italian agribusiness sector reached almost 18 billiones of euro, that is a record. The increase compared to 2014 is equivalent to 8%, thanks to the promotional campaigns linked to the Expo. In june the US market recorded +29% of italian imports, with 1,7 billions of euro only for the selling operations.  “We are in step with the goal of 36 billions in exports within the current year.
These figures are a record, which give an idea of the power that Italy is expressing in this sector and the strenght of a network of small-medium companies motivated to conquest foreign markets. The government supports them and with this special plan for internationalization in the next three years we will invest more than 70 millions euro, with a promotional campaign for the Made in Italy and a fight against the italian sounding. Consumers all over the world are seeking italian food and we want help producers to meet these needs with real italian products”.
