The Extraordinary Italian Taste

The Extraordinary Italian Taste

It’s time to share and celebrate the extraordinary taste of bona fide Made in Italy goods!

#MadeinItaly

ICCO’s mandate to raise awareness for authentic Italian products continues throughout 2017. Authentic Italian products, compared to Italian Sounding products – food which appears to be a product of Italy but it is actually produced in any country other than Italy – will be the focus of a series of new and exciting initiatives.

Unlike counterfeit and/or mislabelled products, which claim to be authentic Italian goods or claim to be manufactured in Italy – the Italian Sounding phenomenon does not constitute an infringement of intellectual property. However, Italian Sounding products affect the reputation of excellence and quality that defines authentic ‘Product of Italy’ goods.

Following last year’s success, we will continue to highlight the authenticity, traceability, quality control, and certifications of authentic Italian foods with the goal of educating Canadian audiences on how to identify an authentic Italian product, in order to make informed purchases and enjoy the unrivalled quality of genuine Italian goods.

It’s time to share and celebrate the extraordinary taste of authentic ‘Product of Italy’ goods!
