Paolo Barilla appointed president of IPACK-IMA 2012

Paolo Barilla, vice-president of the eponymous industrial group and president of AIDEPI, the Association of the Italian Pastry and Pasta Industries, has been named to lead the upcoming edition of IPACK-IMA.
The event will be staged at Fiera Milano from February 28th to March 3rd 2012.
“I am honoured to be offered the office of president for the next edition of  IPACK-IMA 2012, an outstanding event in the industry since 50 years. I hope to accomplish this task with as much commitment and enthusiasm as my predecessor Alberto Bauli, president of the last edition of IPACK-IMA.”
Last December Barilla was elected first president of the newly established AIDEPI, a new association part of Confindustria grouping the Association of Italian Pastry Industries and the Association of Italian Industrial Pasta Makers. This is the first body representing “Made In Italy” food products, with around 130 associated companies and employing 36,000 workers, playing an increasingly important role in the food industry worldwide.
IPACK-IMA represents a key technology showcase for the pastry and pasta industry at a global level, with its extensive display of machinery for the pasta industry and for grain-based food production. It is a comprehensive exhibition, which, with processing, packaging and material handling technology and equipment, displays the world’s top-range production to the food and non-food markets. The previous edition, held in 2009, featured 1400 exhibitions, 28% of whom from outside of Italy, and was visited by 54,000 qualified industry professionals, 25% of whom from 116 different countries outside of Italy. This is the result of a strong growth trend in the industry and reinforces IPACK-IMA’s role as the world’s leading exhibition of technology for pasta production (primarily for dry pasta).
