|Chocolate to taste and buy at Bonajuto, Modica|
Congratulations to my adopted city and its chocolate, which, it has been announced, has outsold chocolate from its two other great Italian homes - Perugia and Turin - at Expo 2015 [closing at the end of this month].
At the Cocoa and Chocolate Cluster, the 22 exhibitors from Modica sold chocolate products worth €217,546, amounting to 46% of chocolate sales there. Chocolate from Perugia accounted for 29.10% of sales and chocolate from Turin 24.64%.

Mayor of Modica Ignazio Abbate said that these figures prove that the human and financial resources the city has put into Expo were a good investment for both its image and its most famous product. The city's own chocolate festival, ChocoModica 2015 [5th - 8th December 2015] will, he said, benefit from the success of Modican chocolate at Expo.
