Degrenne Paris in Milan

The luxury French tableware brand is premium partner of the French Pavilion at the Universal Exhibition in Milan until October 31

The jewel in the crown of French tableware, Degrenne Paris endeavours to perpetuate the delights of French gastronomy and savoir-faire around the world. It is therefore natural for the Normandy producer to be chosen as one of the premium partners of the French Pavilion at the Universal Exhibition in Milan from 1st May to 31st October 2015.

Alongside the 145 nations represented and in line with this year's theme of "Feeding the planet, Energy for life", amongst other things France is celebrating the French gastronomic meal which has been classified a part of Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO since 2010.

Faithful to the French Pavilion for which it was a supplier in Shanghai in 2010, the brand also embraces the values defended by Milan's Universal Exhibition. The Degrenne Paris tableware will be donated to a charity at the end of the exhibition.

Epitomising French excellence, several grand chefs who have all won the Bocuse d'Or were selected to run the kitchens in one of the two restaurants in the French Pavilion, the "Café des Chefs". Among them are Michel Roth, Thibaut Ruggeri, Fabrice Desvignes and also Serge Bieria. On their request, Degrenne Paris was chosen to supply the two restaurants with cutlery and crockery. Genuine proof of their trust and confidence in the brand which offers a complete range of table art to restaurateurs and hoteliers all over the world!

Degrenne Paris collections will be displayed on site, from XY cutlery with its unique design to the elegant Esquisse crockery. The Normandy company will promote its expertise and creativity to some 12,000 visitors expected every day at the French Pavilion.
