The True Italian Taste project – funded and promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation is part of the “The Extraordinary Italian Taste” campaign and coordinated by Assocamerestero, from Rome, Italy.
True Italian Taste aims to:
• Tell consumers all over the world about the benefits of true Italian products and the importance of the link between foods and the places they come from.
• Help food lovers to choose and use authentic Italian ingredients, supporting both businesses and consumers.
• Support Italian makers of certified, traditional and niche products who would like to be better known on international markets and reinforce and expand business opportunities for companies already present on world markets.
• Show how to take advantage of the healthy qualities of true Italian food, promoting organic products, dietary supplements, and all Italian-made products certified for specific ethnic categories (halal and kosher foods).
True Italian Taste, part of the government program “The Extraordinary Italian Taste”, was launched in 2016 on the markets of North America, to then land in the following years also on the main reference markets of Italian agri-food exports to Europe, South America, Asia and Australia.
Through this campaign to raise awareness of the foreign consumer, we want to increase the conscious consumption of 100% made in Italy food, spreading a greater knowledge of the typical characteristics, the places of origin and the nutritional and certification aspects of Protected Designation of Origin PDO and Protected Geographical Indication.
