Italy’s Oleificio Zucchi bets on the U.S. market. The USA is the first foreign market for the growing exports of the Italian olive oil company that announces the opening of its own branch in New York: Zucchi 1810.
Zucchi intends to start an articulated development strategy with the aim of increasing the presence and positioning of its brand in the United States. Encouraging at the same time a more widespread and deepened gastronomic and nutritional culture, characterized by quality, transparency and sustainability.

- Progressive monitoring of each individual American state, creating collaborations with local distributors;
- Building synergies and partnerships with premium retailers;
