MENOMONEE FALLS, WIS. - Alto-Shaam has opened a Culinary Centre in Limena, Italy, equipped with the company’s complete product range of kitchen solutions for product demonstrations and greater engagement with chefs, customers and dealers across the region. 

The new space has been designed with an open kitchen, where guests will be able to enjoy an exclusive culinary journey. A Taste of Alto-Shaam demonstrations, designed to better empower foodservice operators with actionable tips, ideas and insights, will be held at the new institute starting at the end of September. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the demonstrations will be invitation-only but will be occurring once a month. 

“We are very excited about the opening of the first Alto-Shaam Culinary Centre in Italy,” said Francesca La Chiusa, Europe business development manager. “Like us Italians, Alto-Shaam shares the same passion and dedication for top-quality food. Their commitment to producing the highest quality foodservice equipment fits perfectly with our food culture and philosophy. The team and I can’t wait to provide our Italian customers with great support, and ensure their needs are fully met.” 

The new facility will be led by La Chiusa, Sabrina Bellamio, an Alto-Shaam sales representative, and European executive chef Walter Antunes De Campos Neto, who will oversee and present all A Taste of Alto-Shaam demonstrations and provide culinary support to customers.
