Coldiretti, Ferrero and Inalca/Cremonini are the other promoters of the new associative organization, which has the goal to support and value Made in Italy from field to table
“Filiera Italia”, a new associative organization that combines for the first time the agricultural world and high quality Italian agri-food industry, was created to defend Italian agri-food supply chain. The presentation took place in Cernobbio in the last few days on the occasion of 2017 edition of the International Forum of Agriculture and Nutrition, organized by Coldiretti, which is one of the partners promoting “Filiera Italia”, together with Consorzio Casalasco del Pomodoro, Ferrero and Inalca/Cremonini.
The new associative institution is open to the adhesion of other production activities that have the goal to support and value Made in Italy from field to table, with supply chains expressing shared values of territorial and national identity, transparency and sustainability, within a logic of conscious consumption. “Filiera Italia” has been created also to promote awareness and diffusion of nutritional practices based on the principles of Mediterranean diet, through the combination of all the ingredients that are essential for a healthy, varied and balanced nutrition.
Paolo Voltini, President of Consorzio Casalasco del Pomodoro, commented: «we created “Filiera Italia” to best appreciate Italian agriculture, from field to finished product. For years, Casalasco has been supporting its farmers encouraging them in every step of their activity to give value to the real Made in Italy that we export to the World. In this regard I consider very positive the decision concerning the obligation to show the origin of tomato derivatives on the label, to safeguard, at last, those companies that work well and in a transparent way».
