Vinitaly Roadshow China: debut in Shenzhen, Changsha and Wuhan 11-14 June


ITALIAN WINE. FOCUS ON CHINA FOR VINITALY: THE NEW ROADSHOW SETS OFF TODAY

-          B2b mission for 46 companies including Italian wine cellars and distributors; tastings involving more than 300 labels. More than 500 accredited operators for the first stop-off
-          The Vinitaly-Nomisma Observatory estimates an average annual increase of 7.5% in Italian wine exports to China through to 2020. This is higher than the expected overall average local growth in demand of 6% per year
-          Collaboration with ICE-Italian Trade Agency is confirmed with the organisation of "I love Italian wines" training courses.

Verona, 11 June 2018 - Shenzhen, Changsha and Wuhan. These are the new stop-offs for the Vinitaly roadshow scheduled in China 11-14 June, whereby Veronafiere consolidates its presence in Asia, after trips to Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Chengdu and Vinitaly International Academy appointments.
The trade mission travels to three cities in the south-east of the country, totalling more than 40 million inhabitants. The future of demand for wine in China will be concentrated in cities, given the growing importance of an upper class enjoying high spending power (25% of the population by 2022) and a urbanization rate that will increase by 5 points over the next five years to 63%.
According to data published by the Vinitaly-Nomisma Wine Monitor Observatory, wine consumption in China grew by 3% in 2017 compared to 2016 with imports coming to 2.5 billion euros - thereby doubling in value over the last ten years. Italy's market share in the opening months of 2018 sis 7% and growth margins for Italian exports are consequently still very high. Yet the first vital step in winning over new consumers is to promote the quality and variety of Italian wine production among importers, agents and the horeca channel.
With this objective in mind, Vinitaly - the leading international event in the sector organised by Veronafiere - has scheduled three events in Shenzen (11 June) Changsha (13 June) and Wuhan (14 June), bringing together 46 companies in China, including Italian wine cellars and Chinese distributors.
The formula envisages three days dedicated to b2b meetings and tastings of more than 300 labels exclusively for reserved for select professional audience. More than 500 operators have been accredited for the first stop-off in Shenzen. The implementation of the roadshow sees Vinitaly flanked by ICE-Italian Trade Agency, thereby complementing scheduled activities with the "I love Italian wines" training courses promoting awareness of more than 500 Italian native grape varieties. The initiative in China also welcomes the collaboration of Shenzen Pacco Cultural Communication, that already organizes the important IWSS-International Wine and Spirits Show in Chengdu.
"These three cities," said Giovanni Mantovani, CEO of Veronafiere, "are strategic hubs for spreading the culture, history and lifestyle of Italian wine with a view to encouraging consumption. Italian wine exports to China have increased by 50% over the last ten years but we are still a long way behind the results achieved by our competitors. The Vinitaly-Nomisma observatory has estimated through to 2022 an overall increase in Chinese wine imports of 6% per year and 7.5% for Italian labels. This is the catchment of potential consumers we must focus on, not the least thanks to the support of ICE-Italian Trade Agency, with which we continue to work profitably within the scope of the Special Made in Italy Promotion Plan."

Food Addiction Is a Real Thing. But So Is the Power of Hope



Recovered Food Addict develops a proven program to release suffers from the bonds of 
Food Addiction and move them into a life of hope and Food Serenity.





TORONTO, June, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Food Addiction is a prominent issue in society with over 10% of the general population deeply addicted to food or overeating. The problem is real and millions are suffering. Sandra Elia used to be one of them.
At her worst, Sandra Elia reached over 260 pounds and felt defeated from failed diets and empty promises from dieticians. She'd had enough. She set out to conquer her addiction to food and won - losing over one hundred pounds and keeping it off for over 13 years. This fueled Elia's passion to help others break free and to create The Food Addiction Recovery Program in partnership with medical doctors specializing in the treatment of obesity. This program was Ontario's first government-funded [OHIP: Ontario Health Insurance Plan] 12-week outpatient program for Food Addiction Recovery.
Being a problem that Elia deeply understands, she wanted to develop a clear and effective program for successful healing from Food Addiction. She now has a proven method to get everyone to a place of Food Serenity.
"Food Serenity, as I call it, is about remembering who you really are, and what you really need to feel nourished, loved, and accepted," Elia explains.
Addictive eating is mindless eating, she adds. The antidote is mindfulness, leading to regaining the power of choice. This involves developing interventions, techniques, and a daily spiritual practice.
Elia guides clients in mastering their thinking to end the mind chatter that comes with compulsive overeating so they can experience food freedom. They finally come to a place where they can deal with intense feelings without using food.  Understanding the role dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins play in compulsive overeating are key. To guide others on how to overcome these triggers, Elia developed a cognitive behavioral therapy technique to remain calm and confident while facing cravings and urges. Over time, creating new neural pathways ends the addiction loop.
One of Elia's most effective programs is her 5-day Intensive Program. As one of the world's first Certified Food Addiction Counselors, Elia is a true pioneer in this field and developed her own system for taking clients out of their environment and placing them into a therapeutic and natural setting. This gives them a chance to detox from ultra-processed foods, extinguish cravings for sugar, and eat to stabilize hormones. Clients achieve appetite correction and come to a place of neutrality with food.
Each day of the 5-Day Intensive Program features a talk from a world-renowned expert in Food Addiction and Obesity Management. A daily visit from a chef ensures all clients leave with a solid understanding of meal preparation.
Along with personally helping others struggling with food addiction, Elia is working with a professional team to hopefully develop a formal diagnosis of Food Addiction in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM–5). The DSM is the handbook used by healthcare professionals in the United States and much of the world as the authoritative guide to the diagnosis of mental disorders with descriptions, symptoms, and other criteria.
Sandra and her team are striving to educate healthcare providers and offer appropriate assistance to those who suffer with addictive eating. She has worked diligently with a professional team comprised of medical doctors, addiction doctors, researchers, physiologists and physiatrists to develop these programs that have yielded tremendous success. Through these programs, clients have achieved personal success including losing weight, reducing certain medicines, and most importantly, breaking free from Food Addiction.

Elia hosted a radio show on VIBE 105.5FM called "Your Daily Diet, A Spiritual Guide to a Healthy Body Size," which broadcasted to a base residential audience of over 1.6 million. Through that and other programs, she helps people tackle their minds and correct their thinking patterns, which is the single greatest obstacle to losing weight. Her brand's focus is on healing the whole person - mind, body, and spirit.
