For Lavazza, a commitment to quality and innovation are deeply rooted values ingrained in its more than 120-year history. Whether it was inventing the coffee blend, or serving the first espresso in outer space with the ISSpresso project, Lavazza also believes that behind every great film, there is always a great coffee. Indeed, the company shares the same passion for reinvention that the motion picture and television industry has. This is one of the many reasons why Lavazza is proud to celebrate with Hollywood as the Official Coffee at the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Established in Turin in 1895, Lavazza is an Italian coffee producer owned by the family of the same name for four generations. The world's sixth ranking coffee roaster, today the Group has operations in more than 90 countries, through associated companies and distributors, and exports 53% of production. After the acquisition of Carte Noire, Lavazza employs about three thousand people and has a turnover of 1,473 million euros (2015 financial statements). Lavazza started out life by inventing the concept of coffee blending, or the art of combining different varieties of coffee from different geographical areas, in a process that remains a feature of most of the company's products. The company also has a tradition stretching back over 25 years in the production and marketing of portioned coffee systems and products and is Italy's leading player in the espresso capsule system segment, with operations in all business areas: home, away from home and office, with a focus, as always, on innovative technology and consumption systems.

About The Hollywood Foreign Press Association
Founded in the 1940s during World War II, the HFPA was originally comprised of a handful of L.A.-based overseas journalists who sought to bridge the international community with Hollywood, and to provide distraction from the hardships of war through film. Seventy years later, members of the HFPA represent 56 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world's most respected publications. Each year, the organization holds the third most watched awards show on television, the Golden Globe® Awards, which has enabled the organization to donate more than $25 million to entertainment-related charities and scholarship programs.
