During the last 10 years Italian food&wine consumption has considerably increased all over the world. In terms of quality attention to tradition, know-how and authenticity certifications are just some of the values and factors that global consumers are looking for in food today, finding most of them in Italian taste. In terms of quantity Italian cuisine has become as popular as other European or Asian ones. Just looking at USA stats, 60% of every age-range consumer says they eat Italian cuisine at least once a month outdoors (thanks to traditional restaurants, that are gaining popularity in metropolitan areas) and indoors (thanks to Italian products availability in supermarkets and deli stores). Along with consumers also international food industries and enterpreneurs started to understand the true Italian food value, making it a term of reference for gastronomic quality.
