London’s Best Food Shops: Italian Farmers, Stroud Green

London’s Best Food Shops: Italian Farmers, Stroud Green | Travel | Scoop.it

Welcome to our series exploring London’s finest food shops, from butchers and bakers to delicatessens and department stores.
Where in London can you buy toppings for your bruschetta individually hand-made by an Italian grandmother? Or large, lush bunches of San Marzano tomatoes, widely considered to be the best for making pasta sauce?
Much of what we buy as ‘Italian food’ is made elsewhere, using raw ingredients from other countries. This is currently a hot topic in Italy, where the highly respected farmers’ union Coldiretti has been campaigning against counterfeit products in favour of genuine Italian food. Together with Campagna Amica, which promotes local agriculture, and Made In Italy, part of the Italian Trade Agency, their aim is to source eco-friendly food produced by small farmers around Italy.
Campagna Amica owns several shops and farmers’ markets around Italy – and now it’s opened its first outpost outside the home country, in Stroud Green where there’s a large ex-pat community. With brick walls and stone floors in shades of cream and brown, the venue boasts rustic good looks. [...]

Gucci appeals to young consumers with music-focused philanthropy - Luxury Daily - Events / Causes

Gucci appeals to young consumers with music-focused philanthropy - Luxury Daily - Events / Causes | Travel | Scoop.it

Italian fashion house Gucci is attracting young consumers through its Timepieces & Jewelry Music Fund that is giving students in China, Britain and Japan a chance to participate in the Grammy Awards Foundation 2013 Grammy Camp in New York and Los Angeles.

 

This initiative is part of Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry Music Fund’s three-year partnership with The Recording Academy. Gucci is likely aiming to draw in younger consumers with its music-themed, charity partnerships.

 

“Sponsorship of an international music competition for students is a good approach to create brand affinity with younger audiences,” said Ian Foley, a Portola Valley, CA,-based digital marketing strategist.

 

“The challenge for Gucci is to create an ongoing relationship with music so that there is a more natural brand association in the minds of consumers,” he said.
