Milan, June 18 - Eataly has become a partner in
Milan's Expo 2015 and will have its own space within the
exhibition site, organizers of the international event announced
Tuesday.
"The colours and flavors of Eataly will fit with Expo Milan
2015," said organizers.
Eataly's commitment to authentic Italian food production
and culture will help to showcase the nation's best products,
organizers added.
Eataly is a high-end Italian food market which first opened
in Turin in January 2007.
Founded by Oscar Farinetti, an entrepreneur formerly
involved in the consumer electronics business, Eataly is also
sponsored by Slow Food.
Farinetti and his associates own about 60%, with other
shares owned by some cooperatives of Italian retailer COOP
Group.
Eataly also has opened outlets in Bologna, Rome, and New
York City.
Expo 2015, the international exposition, will open on May
1, 2015 and continue through October 31, 2015.
Its main focus will be on environmental issues and fighting
hunger under the theme 'Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life'.
However, Italy's Foreign Minister Emma Bonino has said that
Expo 2015 should also be a forum for bringing together cultures
from a variety of countries.
And in this way Milan, as a "friendly, cosmopolitan city",
is the perfect location for the "festival of integration" that
will be Expo 2015, she has said.
