The project 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’s activities will be implemented during 2016 and 2017 with the support of AICIG (the Italian Association Consortia of Protected Geographical Indication).

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.

  • To raise awareness and of the Canadian professionals towards the European agri-food certification framework and the Italian PDO and PGI, Dop and Igp labels;
  • To develop and strengthen the presence of Italian quality products in the Western Canadian market.
