The Italian Chamber of Commerce of Ontario Canada (ICCO-Canada) celebrated the contributions of the businesses and their contributions promoting excellence in Italian food and wine in Canada.

Now in its ninth year, the Pentola d’Oro gala dinner and awards ceremony is the culmination of a week-long celebration of Italian food and beverages. For the second consecutive year, Lavazza Group is partnering with ICCO-Canada as the main sponsor.

The event took place at Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex in Toronto on November 26.

Corrado Paina, ICCO-Canada’s executive director, says the event is “a special moment, a platform as well as a bastion of the sparkling world of the Italian food and wine industry.”

This year also marks ICCO-Canada’s 60th anniversary, which created the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Toronto in 1961.
