Sponsor statements

This year you are celebrating 70 years in business. What is the value to you of competitions within trade shows and what does it mean to you to support them?

“Seventy years of history is an important milestone for us, but above all a new start. A new spirit that seeks to interpret work and relationships with a renewed sense of welcome and closeness to the entire ice cream and confectionery value chain. This new way of being is a natural fit with our desire to be there and support SIGEP GELATO D’ORO 2022, in which our company will be attentive to the ingredient needs of all those taking part. Competitions during trade shows are an important stimulus for the whole sector, but even more so for the young people who have recently embraced this SWEET world that gives everyone so much HAPPINESS!”

What is the value to you of competitions within trade shows and what does it mean to you to support them?

"For us, competitions have always been fundamental to improving ourselves and comparing notes, two key factors that people need in order to live. A competition is the best way to give shape and substance to training and personal and professional growth.
Leading trade shows are essential to inspiring people and companies to raise the bar on quality, sustainability and development, and Valrhona has always been at the forefront of this.
We are very proud to once again contribute to and support Sigep Gelato d'Oro, which this year will also have the honour of "getting things started again" with the return of a new normal".

Igor Maiellano, Business Unit Manager Valrhona
