The Gluten Free Expo is the first and only certified international fair entirely dedicated to gluten-free products and diet. On 18 November 2015 in Rimini, the third edition of Gluten Free Expo Italy had its final day.
When the fair took place the first time it marked a new beginning in the food industry. The event was characterized by a renewed and growing interest in the event and the gluten-free world of food from visitors, exhibitors and the market alike.
Each year there has been a massive presence of Italian visitors, this year however, the Expo witnessed an increasing number of foreign visitors from all over the world: Europe, USA, Canada, Asia and Australia and more. All the visitors had come to learn about the innovations and excellence in the gluten-free market.
Naturally, Gluto had to be there 🙂
Our own Marco Lembo, founder and father of Gluto tells us how the fair went for Gluto:
Hi Marco! What was the best thing about Gluten Free Expo for you?
Well, the best thing has being testing our product with the italian consumers and they responded beautifully to the taste and texture, as well as to the packaging and provenience of our pasta.
How was Gluto fresh pasta received by the visitors? Is there maybe one comment from a happy customer that you remember specifically?
Extremely well. We’re so happy to have convinced the Italian too. The best comment was probably “This seriously looks and taste as if it would be Italian”.
Did you find any other similar products there?
Not quite, we were the only vegan and gluten-free fresh pasta brand there. Every other producer uses preservatives, additives and/or eggs.
Do you know approximately how many people tasted Gluto pasta at the event?
We made about 400 test portions and distributed more then 150 kg of fresh pasta from Finland.
