traditional Italian agri-food products

PAT – Traditional Agri-food Policies

They are produced with a limited production, linked to a territory and its history.

They are included in a special list, since 1998, established by the Ministry of Agricultural, Food, Forestry and Tourism Policies.

The recognition is given by the region of belonging: today there are more than 5000 typical Italian products.

The Traditional Typical Products represent the Italy of the villages and producers, who tell the ancient past of a place.

In fact, not surprisingly, it is easier to find them at events such as festivals and village festivals, where there is a tendency to enhance and promote the territories.

The fruits of the processing of the land to obtain recognition, in addition to being linked to the place and history, must respect methods of realization, conservation, seasoning and creation.

The activities related to the typical product must have been consolidated and prolonged over time, according to traditional rules and for a period of not less than 25 years.
