The Excellence of Campania in Stockholm

On March 3rd, from 11.30 am to 6.00 pm, at the Grand Hotel, Spegelsalen room –  Södra Blasieholmshamnen 8 – 10327 Stockholm, 20 selected agri food producers of excellence from the Campania region of Italy will exhibit their products. Campania is a region in southern Italy with an ancient tradition in food production, a strong culture of high quality food and an exceptional climate all year round. It is an ancient land: visiting it is walking along an open-air museum.

The Excellence of Campania in Stockholm event is dedicated to buyers, industry, restaurateurs, importers, press and opinion leaders. It will showcase the very best in wine, liqueurs, pasta, buffalo mozzarella, dried fruits, tomatoes, preserves, sweets and coffee. The event is promoted by the Directorate General for Economic Development and Production Activities of the Campania Region (Italy), under the auspices of the Italian Embassy in Stockholm and with the collaboration of the Italian Trade Promotion Agency (ICE, Istituto per il Commercio Estero). The event will feature B2B meetings, free tastings and many informative activities.

Meeting the exhibitors from Campania will enable you to experience true excellence in the agri-food sector: unlike modern food products, excellence has a millennial tradition behind it, and its unique flavour can awaken a consumer’s sense of taste. Meeting the exhibitors B2B will also enable you to appreciate their skills and professionalism, their unaltered artisanal approach coupled with cutting-edge production technology, in full compliance with current EU rules. Visitors will benefit from information sheets, brochures and multi-media support, as well as interpreting assistance where needed.

Products like buffalo mozzarella, pasta, wines and sweets from Campania are known all over the world and have great consumer appeal. The world-famous ‘pizza Margherita’, to name but one, was created here in 1889.

With over 163 thousand businesses, Campania ranks third among Italian regions for agri-food production. Many of its products have been awarded EU protected quality denominations: DOP, Denominazione di Origine Protetta – (PDO, Protected Designation of Origin); DOCG Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita; IGP Indicazione di Origine Protetta (PGI, Protected Geographical Indication); IGT Indicazione di Origine Tipica; SGT Specialità Tradizionale Garantita (TSG, Traditional Speciality Guaranteed).

Campania typically produces excellence and quality products, as well as having a long-standing export tradition. Enhancing the ‘Made in Campania’ brand is thus a key component of the regional strategy, and the focus of specialised resources and activities. Our exhibitors’ participation to The Excellence of Campania in Stockholm is just one of several actions within the Promotion Plan for ‘Made in Campania’ products, coordinated by the Directorate General for Economic Development and Production Activities of the Campania Region (Project “Strengthening the promotion of Made in Campania”

ERDF Regional Operational Programme for Campania 2007/2013 -  Operational Objective 2.6).
