Testimonials from 2018 Edition

At Cibus there is a lot to discover, it is a paradise for those who work in the food industry.

Haouchine Hakim

Pizza Express - CHINA

Cibus impressed me because there are many suppliers, it is well organised and it is very easy to manage one’s time, to plan one’s meetings.

A very useful event for buyers, both for the relations with one’s current suppliers and to learn about innovations and new business opportunities.

Aeon Trading Company - SOUTH KOREA

This was an amazing opportunity to get exposure to a very vast range of Italian companies and products. The show was beautifully set up and easy to navigate. I made some great connections that I hope will positively impact our business in the future. Thank you!

Claudia Vorlaufer

Earls Kitchen and Bar - CANADA

It is good to have a fair where you can meet all the interesting Italian suppliers. It is well organized and for me it was added value for my knowledge.

Michel Mahulette


World best show, class and full of exciting product. its my 5th time visit and this show keeps getting better and better.

Girar Gerardos Vouyoukas


The situation has worsened over the last days with the rise of restrictions to travel to and from Italy from several countries. The context has become too precarious and these circumstances are likely to damage Cibus, the investments of our exhibitors, as well as the reputation of Parma which this year is also the Italian Capital of Culture. The postponement to September is a responsible and strategic choice: Cibus will become the key appointment of next fall for the international market and for Made in Italy food. Hence the decision to postpone. In the interest of everyone.

Antonio Cellie

CEO of Fiere di Parma

Cibus is the closest and deepest place to meet Italian food.

Kim Junyoung

Hyundai Department Store - SOUTH KOREA

It led to the business from now on. I think it is a great fair.

Takayoshi Yamawaki

Isetan Mitsukoshi - JAPAN

Really its a unique show in the whole world that I can’t missed.

Khan Mohammed

Olayan Food Services Company - SAUDI ARABIA

The organization was excellent and I hope to return in the next edition.

Miren Jasone Ruiz Arregui

Purchasing Manager, Eroski – SPAIN

Italian Food is a capital reality for the economy and the development of the country on an international scale. Parma has made a fantastic job of bringing together so many producers.

Alex Tosolini

Senior Vice President, The Kroger Company – UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A unique oppotunity to deeply know about italian food. Professional but close to the client. Seriously, a great approach to the “new traditional Italian Market”.

Maria Mercedes Garcia Goti

Eroski - SPAIN

A good fair in many ways. Perfect size, not too small or too big and the suppliers had time to engage in discussions and meetings. Very well organized by the staff. I definitely would recommend joining the fair.

Jessica Brostroem


We have done everything possible to avoid the decision to reschedule however, the uncertainty and concerns regarding the persistence of COVID-19, which risk having a severe impact on the number of visitors and exhibitors, have led us to the decision to push back Cibus to September

President of Federalimentare
