Gourmets get to celebrate 152 years of the friendship between Thailand and Italy by tucking into delicacies including pastas from Di Martino, Dolce & Gabbana and Rustichella, Ferrarini ham, Il Boschetto virgin olive oil, and Venchi chocolate until September 22.
Laid on by the Italian Trade Agency (ITA) and endorsed by the ambassador, the feast is being served at 11 Central Food Hall branches – Chidlom, CentralWorld, Bangna, Eastville, The Crystal, Chiang Mai, Pattaya Beach, Phuket Festival, Phuket Floresta, Phuket Patong, and Porto de Phuket, and via Tops online.
"This agreement with Central Retail is considered as a significant part as we have our mutual goals to promote, increase, and enhance the made-in-Italy products and services in the local Thai market,” gushed Giuseppe Lamacchia, ITA director at the Italian Embassy. “Obviously, it is a new commercial strategy which supports business in both physical and online stores for Thai consumers."
