​Food Accademia returns to TFWA Cannes with premium Italian fare

By Laura Shirk

Food Accademia will showcase six brands, including DiVò by Terre Gaie wines

Food Accademia, specialist suppliers of premium Italian food and drinks brands, is bringing its Italian fare to the TFWA World Exhibition in Cannes this year.

Food Accademia currently markets 40 brands, supplying both retail and food service outlets globally. The company will showcase six brands at the fair. New for 2023 are Calugi Stefania Truffles, truffle-based premium products and Le Cocktail, a ready to drink premium cocktail offered in glass tubes and cans. These will be displayed alongside Flamigni, panettone and Italian Aperitif savoury snacks; Cà dei Frati wines; DiVò by Terre Gaie wines, the only quality wines bottled in a 375-ml aluminium bottle; and Cask Gheller, Villa Sandi Prosecco from the Valdobbiadene hills.

The company has developed its range to include more high quality, typical Italian products, in line with changing passenger demand. As part of its retail offer, Food Accademia does all the preliminary work, allowing category managers to select efficiently the best products to suit their stores.

Food Accademia CEO, Fabrizio Canal says, “The move towards fine dining and drinking is not confined to restaurants but is also influencing retail, with travelers buying the finest produce as a souvenir or gift. To satisfy this trend, retailers are looking for new brands and products to provide a real journey experience to increasingly discerning travelers.

“Food Accademia has had a great year and I am delighted to be back at the TFWA exhibition again this year. We are committed to creating opportunities and customized solutions for retailers in this industry, offering the advantage of one single supplier account with different brands and products under the same umbrella. We consistently offer travel retail and duty free buyers wonderful and unique products from across Italy and we look forward to introducing our widening portfolio which has diversified to reflect the different characteristics of Italy with a more sustainable selection for travelers.

“Food Accademia specializes in bringing authentic, fine Italian food, confectionery and wine & spirits to the travel retail stage. From the start, our ambition has been to present buyers with a portfolio of Italian excellence that is unique to the sector. La Dolce Vita – a beautiful landscape, a good bottle of wine, good food, clothes and cars are always more desirable when they have the word Italian next to them.”
