ROME (ITALY), Monday, December 17, 2018 (MERCURPRESS.COM) - CHICAGO, December 13 2018 - The trade mission organized by the Sicilian Regional Government - Department of Trade and Business as part of the promotional plan for the year 2018 has just closed in Chicago, with the participation of 10 Sicilian companies specialized in stone and agri-food sectors.

The Mission took place from December 10 to 13 and saw the participation of three companies in the stone sector (Avola Stone Design, Eraclea Marmi and Hermes Marmi) and seven companies in the food and wine sector (Azienda Agricola Filangeri, Cantina Chitarra, Consorzio Elaion, Il Sole a Cavallo, I Veri Sapori dell'Etna, Only Sicilian Food, Primoti).

These companies, representing excellent products from the island, carried out guided tours and one-to-one meetings with US buyers and importers from the Chicago and Midwest areas, offering a wide range of high quality products. During the B2B meetings for the agro-food sector, which took place at the Conference Center 200 W Madison St, it was found a considerable interest from American traders on several items on display, with particular reference to products based on pistachio, wines of Etna and Nero d'Avola, extra virgin olive oils, liqueur based on seaweed and Sicilian herbs, sea salt of Trapani salt pans and coffee.

At the same time the trade mission was held, an exhibition of fine Sicilian stone materials was also inaugurated in Chicago, at the "Calia Stone Boutique" showroom, located at 154 West Hubbard Street (in the Design District area), which will last until the end of January. The opening night was an opportunity to illustrate to professionals the peculiar characteristics of Sicilian marbles and the different varieties that are extracted and processed in the marble basins of the island.

Sicilian stone companies had several meetings with architects, designers, importers and managers of specialized showrooms and carried out guided tours at leading international architectural firms and warehouses specializing in the import and processing of stone materials.

Every year, the Sicilian Region's Department of Production Activities organises dozens of promotional activities in favour of Sicilian companies in various countries around the world. The main purpose of these actions is to make known the best of the productions of Sicily, the Land of Myths and Traditions, and support companies in international markets, creating business opportunities and organizing meetings with buyers and professionals.
