The Italian Food Awards USA 2022 returns to the Summer Fancy Food Show

After a pause from the pandemic, the Italian Food Awards USA will showcase the most innovative products in the US market between 2020 and 2021 to a live audience at the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City

For the second consecutive time, Italy will be partner country of the Summer Fancy Food Show, which makes the event even more relevant. Visiting the Italian pavilion at the trade show is an incredible opportunity for show buyers to see firsthand the latest Italian products. The last Italian Food Awards USA took place in 2019.

During the award ceremony, will present exclusive research on the American consumer through our partnership with BVA BDRC – the award-winning international consumer insight consultancy, conducting research in over 90 countries.

THE SELECTION CRITERIA has selected over 90 products that have been nominated by about 50 companies in 10 categories. These are the evaluation criteria: the business potential that the product can develop in the buyer’s country of origin (focus on sustainability of the supply chain, and production process); level of product and packaging innovation (selling proposition, service content, quality of marketing and communication, attractiveness on the shelf of the packaging of the candidate product).


Ten products will be awarded in each category and three special awards will be assigned in these three areas: Innovation, Packaging, and Sustainability.


We have selected a jury of experts made up of North American buyers importers and distributors of the network.


The award ceremony will be held on June 13 at 4 p.m. at the Javits Center in New York City – Level 1 – Room 1A03.
