BIRRA DOLOMITI JOINS AS A PARTNER TO EXPO DOLOMITI HORECA, THE MOUNTAIN HOSPITALITY AND RESTAURANT FAIR, WHICH WILL BE HELD FROM OCTOBER 10 TO 12 IN LONGARONE
This appointment represents a moment of encounter between hoteliers, restaurateurs, public businesses in the Dolomites, and in the mountains more generally, with companies that supply this important sector with goods and services. Tourism, which is constantly expanding in the Dolomite mountains, needs a meeting point where new business can be developed for companies working in the HoReCa world. The event was born, in fact, from the need to prepare a territory to welcome and enhance the opportunities that will come with the Milan – Cortina 2026 Winter Olympics. Birra Castello with the Birra Dolomiti brand is alongside Dolomiti HoReCa in this path, confirming the its presence and roots in the territory. The company has a special bond with the mountains, in fact, Birra Dolomiti is made with the use of 100% Italian cereals and among the ingredients there is also malt from barley from the Dolomites. Raw material result of an integrated supply chain project born in 2006, thanks to the collaboration with an agricultural cooperative that cultivates two-row barley for beer for the Fabbrica in Pedavena in various municipalities in the province of Belluno on the slopes of the Dolomites.
Birra Dolomiti has decided to be alongside this important trade fair event thanks also to the support of the Moser company, the official distributor of the product in the Belluno area. The Moser company has always operated in the province of Belluno. Founded in 1948 in Pieve di Cadore, today it represents a point of reference, being a leader in the beverage distribution sector, also covering part of the provinces of Bolzano and Trento. The attention and sensitivity towards these territories led Birra Dolomiti and Moser to collaborate with Longarone Fiere with the aim of showcasing the excellence of the territory.
In this context, Longarone Fiere Dolomiti, recognized as a mountain exhibition center, has always put itself at the service of the territory and the realities that invest in it. For the President Gian Angelo Bellati “the important visibility that this trade fair can give, combined with the major events that increasingly see the mountains as the protagonist, will also highlight the extraordinary agri-food excellence of an area that is a symbol of quality of life, from a slow & green experiential tourism. Even more thanks to the synergy with Fabbrica in Pedavena with Birra Dolomiti which is teaching in this regard. A partnership that will therefore be able to best represent the wonderful flavors of an uncontaminated land “.
