Italy food exports up, production for domestic use down

Parma, May 16 - In the first quarter of 2013 Italian food exports increased 12% over last year and, for the first time firms, exporting foodstuffs have overtaken those producing exclusively for the domestic market, Italian food industry group Federalimentare said on Thursday. Some 51% of Italian companies producing food products are undergoing "internationalization", Federalimentare said at the Cibus Global Forum being held in Parma. In addition, macroeconomic analysis conducted by Federalimentare on 1,000 companies found that almost one in four (23.2%) producers working on foreign markets provide 30% of total revenues for the sector.
