Italian agri-food products: An extraordinary tale

best italian agri-food products

Italy, is recognized all around the world as the homeland of art and culture. A heritage of inestimable value.


Francesco Borromini - Sant'Ivo Alla Sapienza - Rome

However, although less well known, extremely important is the heritage of italian agri-food sector: An incredible wide range of products, each strictly linked to its territory.

We talk about agricultural products as raw materials and products that have undergone processing and transformation. Here, Italy is a giant. We explain it through numbers.

Italy actually has 319 food product and 526 wines recognized with a Certification label of European Union among

P.D.O. (Protected Designation of Origin); P.G.I. (Protected Geografic Indication); T.G.S. (Traditional Guaranteed Specialty) for food

and I.G.T., D.O.C., D.O.C.G., for wine***.
***However with the legislative decree N░ 61 of April 8th 2010, all the wines D.O.C. and D.O.C.G. had to merge into the P.D.O. denomination, with the possibility to maintain the D.O.C. and D.O.C.G. "old" denominations.

Italy is first nation in the world for number of certified products.

variety, flavours, quality

A country, 20 regions, whose differences are many, from climate, to biodiversity, to traditions, to the products of the land and their processing into great final quality products.

But what is so interesting and peculiar about it?

We could consider many elements.

- regional differences: a basic product, hundreds and hundreds of different products in terms of taste, techniques, flavors, shapes. A word, "typical", represents Italian products very well and it means features and relationships to a place in a strong way.

- ancient roots: many of those products have ancient origin, sometimes millennial origin and this aspect relates the products to the history of Italy, millennial. History and tradition bound together, products and its transformations that are almost always handed down over the centuries.

- quality: everyone all around the world recognize the quality of our italian products. So, quality of raw materials, quality in processing, food safety and susteinability.

- Certification : having 845 certified products puts Italy in a leading position.

It means that a product - especially a P.D.O. product - must follow a specification that dictates very strict rules on the product and processing. This causes a considerable effort for the producer to adhere to these rules, but with substantial advantages for the end consumer who knows what he is eating and knows he can be safe.
