Oleificio Zucchi will continue its conquest of the US market at the annual Private Label Manufacturers Association’s 2017 trade show, the most prestigious US trade show dedicated to Private Labels. This year it will be held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, in Chicago from November 12-14. Zucchi, which specializes in the production of expertly blended extra virgin olive oil, will be exhibited as part of the Italian collective organized by Cremona, Italy Chamber of Commerce.

Oleificio Zucchi will be displaying its entire range of traceable extra virgin olive oils, specifically developed for the US market, with graphics and package sizes chosen to suit the purchasing preferences of American consumers.

Visitors to the show will also be able to participate in a series of professional tastings, an educational experience that will reveal the different flavor profiles of extra virgin olive oils, evolved through the Italian penchant for fine food production, for which Zucchi is a worldwide ambassador.

“The Private Label sector in the United States is growing rapidly and our participation at PLMA is essential for us to know and understand the market" states company CEO Alessia Zucchi. "As ambassadors of excellence in Italian olive growing, we are proud to be a trusted partner of olive oil distribution from overseas, where for years our consumers recognize la quality of our products.”

**** More about Oleificio Zucchi SpA ****
Oleificio Zucchi originated in 1810 in the area near Lodi as a family business that milled oilseeds to make oil for human consumption. The first industrial plant near Cremona was built in 1922, and gradually grew to the size of a real factory. In 1946, the Zucchi family incorporated today’s company, Oleificio Zucchi SpA, and relaunched production after the difficult wartime years. Starting in the mid-1950s, Oleificio Zucchi became supplier of choice of the private labels of Italy's leading retail chain groups. In the early ‘90s, due to its constant growth the company was forced to transfer its operations to its current location on the Cremona navigation canal, on an area of 80,000 m2.

Under the leadership of the Zucchi family, personally involved in its management, the plant has been kept up to date with the latest technical and plant engineering developments, enabling it to respond quickly to the market’s demands in terms of product quality and environmental impact, with a particular focus on constant quality of service and flexibility of offering. The last few years have seen another major development at Oleificio Zucchi: the introduction of the olive oil line as the natural completion of the product range. Oleificio Zucchi has now established itself as Italian market leader, and thanks to its history and innovation, today it has become the most reliable, well proven partner of the modern trade, as well as an innovative player on the olive and seed oil market.
