CEI Wholesale Markets Foundation Study Tour, Italy, June 2005CEI Wholesale Markets Foundation Study Tour, Italy, June 2005

A Study Tour on Italian Wholesale Markets was organised by FAO and the CEI Wholesale Markets (WM) Foundation from 6-8 June 2005. The general purpose of the Study Tour was to illustrate (i) existing interactions between traditional WMs and the food retail industry, (ii) various types of WM ownership and management models and, more generally, (iii) different types of public/private partnership arrangements utilised for the development of fresh produce WMs in Italy. Visited markets included: Rome (Centro Agroalimentare di Roma), Fondi, Salerno and the new WM of Naples. The Study Tour also included the visit of a series of fruit and vegetables cooperatives in the Naples/Salerno region. The target audience of the Study Tour included directors of the members of the CEI WM Foundation, as well as a number of FAO professional staff interested in marketing issues. Six Eastern and Central European (ECE) countries were represented: Albania, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Romania and the Ukraine. On 6 June 2005, as part of the Study Tour, a seminar was held at FAO Headquarters on on the ï¿_linkages between the food retail industry and WMs". Study Tour Outcome: The level of exchange between ECE participants and Italian WM professionals was excellent and the Study Tour immediately triggered a series of bilateral contacts, both at the level of the participating market companies and at the commercial level.
