The following is the abstract from the full report:
The Italian food market is still in recovery from the effects of low carb, but consumers are returning to their pastas and pizza, especially to products that offer the promise of good carbs. Sales for Italian food reached $11.9 billion in 2006, growing 3% over the 2005 level of $11.5 billion. However, sales in certain channels are flat, such as the classic supermarket retail format.

This updated Packaged Facts report, Italian Foods in the U.S., takes an in-depth look at these major trends that will continue to spur this market to nearly $14 billion by 2011, on the strength of functional and fortified foods; convenience products for smaller households and busy households; and premium and authentic products and ingredients.
