"The event is dedicated to US importers and wholesalers, merchants, buyers for restaurants, wine bars and specialized stores, as well as wine collectors and wine and food journalists," said Loris Scagliarini, president of the Italian Flavor Consortium. "The goal is to make it easier for importers, distributors, re-sellers, restauranteurs, wine bar managers and the US trade press to taste, choose, order and distribute quality Italian wines and food products, which are rare and hard to find in the States because they are produced by small and medium estates. Our agents are Italians and Americans who live in Italy who know the small and medium producers personally and are able to assess the uncompromising quality of their products before we add them to the portfolio (presented at the Italian Flavor Forum. The way to win in the competition with wine producing countries such as Australia, Chile and Argentina, is to focus on the quality and uniqueness of many Italian products, as well as dependable distribution."

The Italian Flavor Forum will take place concorrently with a photo exhibition entitled 'Immaginario Barocco - Fotografie di Giuseppe Leone' (Imaginative Baroque - Photographs by Giuseppe Leone), co-sponsored by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura (Italian Cultural Institute). In all, Loris Scagliarini will propose about 70 Italian quality products new to the US market, as well as returning favotirtes.
