Milan EXPO 2015 Ends

USA Pavilion

The USA Pavilion closed its doors Saturday night as Milan EXPO 2015 ended. A whopping six million people visited the USA Pavilion between May 1 and October 31. Over 140 countries participated in the World Fair.
The USA Pavilion showcased the idea “American Food 2.0: United to Feed the Planet,” and spotlighted American leadership on issues such as food security and policy, technology, nutrition and health, and culinary culture. The USA Pavilion focused on the United States as an innovator not only in the food sector, but also in many aspects of culture, science, and business.
USSEC was a partner in the Friends of the USA Pavilion Milano 2015. The friends of the USA Pavilion Milano 2015 was the private sector partner that worked with the U.S. government to develop and implement an official U.S. presence at the Expo, which ran from May 1 through October 31. The partnership’s mission was to conceive, design, fundraise for and produce the USA Pavilion and programs at Expo Milano 2015.
USSEC’s participation was a part of a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) Global Broad-based Initiative (GBI) on sustainability. USSEC acts as the lead in a sustainability alliance consisting of twelve USDA cooperators representing agriculture, forestry and fisheries through the U.S. Sustainability Alliance (USSA).
