Today, Italian cuisine is re-interpreted and reconstructed across the globe. The end result is that what Canadians may be familiar with as Italian food isn’t really Italian due to misused ingredients or using products without DOP and IGP certifications. The Authentic Italian Table is bringing back pure
flavours, celebrating certified Italian ingredients and bringing Canadians the extraordinary taste of
The EXTRAORDINARY ITALIAN TASTE program
The program The Extraordinary Italian Taste – Promotion and Enhancement of the authentic Italian
agri-food products is promoted and financed by the Ministry of Economic Development in
collaboration with the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada West (ICCC) and other eight Italian
Chambers of Commerce in North America (Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles,
Miami, New York and Mexico City).
The project is part of a national campaign whose main goal is to promote awareness in North
America about the authentic and certified agri-food Italian products, as in the continent
supermarkets’ shelves extensively host many products evoking Italy, neither having any connection
to Italy, nor involving an Italian manufacture.
