ITALIA

   Where food & wine meet culture and lifestyle

A TRAVEL TO ASIA

We're back from Asia. A long journey from Hong Kong to Singapore, passing through Seoul, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur. They are big cities with exotic charm, rich in culture and vibrant. We have explored, experienced and admired them.

 

On the business front, we found in Asia a confirmation of a growing market of great interest. Just as interesting were the meetings with fifteen different clients who have allowed us to understand the current market trends and business opportunities for the products of Italian food & wine, considered in the Far East true icons of fashion and culture. Singapore and Korea, more than others, are particularly receptive on this subject, especially for wine. Just in Korea, in fact, according to some data released by the ICE (Italian Institute for Foreign Trade ) from January to September 2013, the Italian wine imports increased by 17.74 % compared to the same period last year. An increase of more than 6 percentage points compared to France, which holds the record in this market: a success.
