Gruppo Food is an Italian publishing house with over 30 years of leadership in B2B communication in the food sector. Our headquarters are on the main central square of Parma, the capital of Italy’s food valley.

The editorial plan offers buyers exclusive information on emerging trends and the most innovative products launched by Italian companies in international markets, divided by category.

Launched in 2015, Gruppo FOOD promotes and organizes the ITALIAN FOOD AWARDS.

For every edition, we collect entries from Italian companies that have launched innovative quality products in international markets and submit them to a jury of buyers of the Italianfood.net network.

The awarding ceremony takes place every year in the month of October (during the major ANUGA and SIAL food shows).

The US edition of the ITALIAN FOOD AWARDS was launched in 2017 and takes place in June during the Summer Fancy Food Show, America’s largest specialty food show.


Over the years, the ItalianFOOD.net team has developed special events dedicated to retailers and foodservice companies around the world.


The service is entirely free for: buyers, importers, distributors and brokers.
