Parma food fair May 5-8 poised to receive 60,000 operators

(ANSA) - Rome, April 16 - A record number of exhibitors have signed up for the international food trade fair Cibus, taking place in Parma May 5-8. About 60,000 buyers are expected to flock to the trade fair. Of those, about 10,000 will be coming from outside of Italy.

Italian Agriculture Minister Maurizio Martina and Italian Deputy Minister for Economic Development Carlo Calenda will participate. The fair has undergone significant revamping in view of Milan Expo 2015. "We have prepared an edition of Cibus that we wanted to be truly extraordinary in anticipation of Expo 2015," said Franco Boni, the president of Fiere di Parma, which organizes the event.

Offerings from all parts of the food supply chain will be on show, from wholesalers to grocers and large discount stores, from restaurants to catering. Products cater even to niche markets, like organic, gluten-free, halal, and kosher food.
