  • MD.net – Mediterranean Diet – When Brand Meets Peoples (Associated partner)

Main role in project MD.net:

Due to the fact that the jurisdiction of the awards in the UNESCO intangible heritage in the agro-food industry lies in the Department of competitive policies of agro-food quality, horse and fisheries sector, we want to support a project that will ensure standardization of definitions and criteria adopted by representative communities of the Mediterranean Diet, in order to avoid that every single community operates in a disconnected manner. We would stress the importance of the transnational approach and at the same time the significance of our role as Country directly involved. In particular we think that it’s needed the identification of “transferable features” of the MD that can be sustainably adapted to other settings in the international context, because of the fact that we believe that promoting the cooperation between MD regions through permanent agreement is a tool to strengthen their identity and their economic growth.
