Food Accademia is delighted to announce the launch of its brand new website www.foodaccademia.it specifically designed to give travel retailers and food service concessionaires an appetizing insight into its industry exclusive offer. Mouths will water at the visual introduction to the authentic Italian fine food and beverage brands offered by Food Accademia to the global travel retail industry while a full range of downloadable brochures give a complete guide to the portfolio by category (fine foods, wines & spirits, confectionery and foodservice).
Visitors can also see Food Accademia’s new freestanding display units, designed to enable retailers to offer a taste of Italy to travellers in the smallest of spaces.
The website is launched in the run-up to this year’s virtual TR Marketplace, organised by TR Business, where Food Accademia will be highlighting a selection of brands from its portfolio, including a number of new partnerships since last year:
· Tasca d’Almerita wines - an amazing selection including the prestigious Rosso del Conte
wooden gift box of one to six bottles; the perfect gift of choice for the wine connoisseur.
· T&C Truffle based products - a range of products for truffle lovers, including gift boxes that are
perfect for travel retail.
· Quattrociocchi extra virgin olive oil - a wonderful range including the perfect Extra Virgin Olive
Oil gift box containing three recipes: Olivastro, Delicato and Superbo.
· Loredan Gasparini Capo di Stato wine - the highlight of a wonderful portfolio, the famous
‘Capo di Stato’, is included in the French publication ‘100 vins de légende’ as one of the 100
legendary wines in the world thanks to its history and quality.
· Hausbrandt coffee - look out for the Vintage Tin, an excellent gift idea for those who love the
very best espresso Italian coffee.
· Flamigni panettone and nougat - the softest and hardest and of sweets; both share ancient
origins, are linked to anniversaries and clearly represent two cornerstones of the Italian
gastronomic heritage. Perfect as gifts or to take a taste of Italy back home.
Bringing together the very best that Italy has to offer, Food Accademia is constantly working with its partners to bring particularly relevant products to travel retail.
New for this year is Ceci’s ‘To You (a te)’ Bolle di Lambrusco, a beautifully designed matt black bottle with gold stopper that comes complete with chalks to enable the body to be personalised by the purchaser. A perfect gift idea for travel retail, Bolle di Lambrusco will sit well on the shelves of airports internationally.
Also new from Castagner is a gift box containing 3 x 200ml types of Italian Grappa. Perfect as a gift to friends or to taste different flavours of this typically Italian spirit, the box is just one example of a wide range of innovative, top quality grappas offered by Castagner. Serve Grappa Ice cold for an emotional Italian experience.
Or what about absolutely delicious Clementines covered in Dark chocolate from Torre Saracena – a truly different confectionery that is ideal for travel retail. One of a kind, thanks to the softness and juiciness of the candied clementine, the fruit is processed immediately after harvest using a natural candying “cold process” that lasts up to 25 days. Repeated slow cooking cycles keep the clementines tender, juicy and fragrant even once candied. The perfect marriage between the clementine sweetness and the best dark chocolate, these make the perfect self- indulgent treat or gift.
All this plus much more can be seen at TR Marketplace, from Zaini’s luxurious chocolate bars and products to Casa Gheller prosecco, from Virginia’s Amaretti biscuits and pastries to Cà dei Frati Lugana and Amarone wine and Sommariva pesto and sauces.
Says company founder/global director Fabrizio Canal “We have the right products, the right merchandising support and the right expertise to create the best Italian fine food offer for any travel retail environment. Make an appointment with us on our TR Marketplace hub and we will introduce you to an Italian food experience that you will not forget.”
