(AGI) Rome, June 27 - "Made in Italy" produce continues to go from strength to strength in the U.S., as confirmed by the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York. Undersecretary for Economic Development, Ivan Scalfarotto, and the President of the ICE Institute for Foreign Trade, Michele Scannavini, are due to attend. ICE is taking part in collaboration with Federalimentare, Cibus, Tuttofood and Vinitaly. Last year closed with a 22 percent increase in Italian exports in the agrifood and wine sectors thanks to ICE's continual work in supporting Italian businesses and promoting the Italy brand abroad, and thanks also to Italy's foresighted approach and business acumen. In 2014 exports were 3.23 billion euros, and last year the figure rose to 3.96 billion euros, with hundreds of new products exported and many new businesses promoting their products in the U.S. This positive trend continues this year, with a 5.8 percent increase in the first few months of the year. Last year, Italy was in fifth place of countries supplying the U.S. market, reaching first place in the supply of products such as wine, olive oil, cheese, pasta and mineral water, and in third place for baked goods and cured meats. The Summer Fancy Food Show is the biggest commercial food event in the U.S. It is being held at the Javitz Centre in New York until June 28, with 330 Italian businesses taking part with produce including pasta, cheese, olive oil and cured meats under the banner "Extraordinary Italian Taste".
