Taste - It's from Europe

Project

“Taste of Europe - When excellence and quality meet the world” is a project co-financed by the European Community with the mission to communicate and promote the high value-add qualitative standards of the European agricultural productions in the USA and Canada.


The project started in April 2017 and will last three years. Experts of the food & beverage sector and consumers from the two countries will be involved in direct promotion activities and online awareness campaigns targeting European food excellence and quality, as well as its traceability and safety levels in comparison to other products, as guaranteed by EU official denominations and labels.
The project “Taste of Europe” was launched by five Consortiums for the promotion and protection of typical, traditional products from Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region.

They are:


  • Consorzio Tutela del Lambrusco di Modena

  • Consorzio Vini di Romagna

  • Consorzio per la Tutela e la promozione dei vini DOP Reggiano e Colli di Scandiano e di Canossa

  • Consorzio Tutela Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena DOP

  • Consorzio del Prosciutto di Modena DOP
