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 authentic and certified agri-food Italian products, as many shelves in the continent’s supermarkets extensively host products evoking Italy, neither having any connection to Italy, nor involving an Italian manufacturer.
