Institutional Partners

The Cibus Buyers Program is the result of a long-lasting collaboration between Fiere di Parma, Federalimentare (co-owners of the Cibus Brand) and ITA – Italian Trade Agency.

We cooperate in several activities that represent the key point of the Program, such as scouting and selection, invitation, logistics and welcoming of international participants.

Our joint efforts aim to provide selected international professionals with a unique experience in the Italian food business: thanks to the meeting with the Cibus companies and educational sessions, they will have the chance to better understand the potential and uniqueness of authentic Italian agri-food products. Moreover, the Program offers them the opportunity to join tailor-made activities both inside and outside the exhibition thanks to the strategic position of Parma in the Italian Food Valley.
