"Attending SIAL India gave to Tradizione Italiana and its companies the chance of heading the Italian Pavilion, being a part of an exhibition that is still new and unknown to most of our competitors. This aspect and the collaboration of SIAL Organization partnering with Universal Marketing, the Forum of Indian Food Importers and the Italian Trade Agency made our participation really valuable as we have been able to meet the most important players of the Indian market, strengthening the presence of our brands and hopefully beginning new co-operation with importers and distributors."
