The Italian Trade Agency will support Italian producers to celebrate the finest Italian ingredients and authentic cuisine
 
Dubai, UAE, Dubai, 10 October 2018:   The Italian Trade Agency (ITA), together with the Embassy of Italy to the UAE and the Consulate General of Italy in Dubai, is getting ready to celebrate Italy's best ingredients, producers, authentic Italian cuisine and traditions in the Week of the Italian Cuisine in the World, which returns to the UAE for the third year in a row. 
 
A number of events and activities will be hosted during this extended celebration starting on 25 October lasting for one month until 25 November, to profile the growing number of Italian producers successfully exporting their authentic Italian ingredients to the UAE. 
 
Gianpaolo Bruno, Italian Trade Commissioner to the UAE, Oman and Pakistan said, “Food is one of Italy's most renowned and loved icons and Italian producers exported over 300 million euros worth of items to the UAE in 2017. With over 300 Italian restaurants in Dubai alone, Italian cuisine is hugely popular with residents and visitors of the UAE.” 
 
HE Liborio Stellino, Ambassador of Italy to the UAE said, “This week is about celebrating the best from Italy and we want to educate consumers so they can identify high-quality, authentic Italian ingredients when they are shopping and dining out. We are working with internationally-recognised producers, the most talented resident and visiting Italian chefs and restaurants across the Emirates to fuel the passion for fantastic Italian cuisine.”
 
World Pasta Day 2018: 25 October 
 
Officially kicking off the celebrations will be the global event World Pasta Day, which will be celebrating its 20th anniversary event in Dubai for the first time.

Following the first World Pasta Day held in Naples in 1998 to Sao Paolo in 2017, this year the vibrant city of Dubai will host a full day debate with experts including nutritionists, dieticians, scientists, prominent individuals in the industry, Chef Mohamed Orfali and some of the most internationally-renowned Italian chefs. The day will celebrate and promote the quality, nutritious ingredient that is a staple of a healthy Mediterranean diet to a global audience.

To help support the growing Italian pasta brands exporting to the UAE's robust F&B industry, 15 selected Italian restaurants in Dubai will be offering a special menu of pasta dishes to customers who will also receive a complimentary pasta sample to cook at home, provided by selected Italian producers associated to AIDEPI.
