Enjoy European Quality Food project ends: final event in Milan

EEQF- #EnjoyEuropeanQualityFood, the EU co-funded project created with the aim of spreading and increasing awareness in Europe of the quality of Italian products with designation of origin and geographical indication, has come to an end. The closing event held in Milan crowns four years of work in which we organized events, show cooking and tasting sessions involving Spain, the United Kingdom, Germany and Poland, with the aim of enhancing the products and promoting the identity and cultural diversity of the various regions, boosting the economic and social revival of the territories involved.

The six participating partners contributed to the dissemination of the cultural significance that food and wine holds in our country, testifying to the excellence that comes from the combination of the territory’s natural resources, the art of processing and human experience. During the panel discussion, moderated by journalist Antonio Picasso, speakers included Cesare Baldrighi (President Origin Italia), Giangiacomo Gallarati Scotti Bonaldi (President Federdoc), Giovanni Guarneri (#EEQF Project Leader and President Consorzio Tutela Provolone Valpadana) and Giacomo Pondini (Director of Consorzio dell’Asti and Moscato d’Asti DOCG.

We would also like to thank the Vice President of the Senate Gian Marco Centinaio, who sent us a contribution in which he emphasized how EEQF was one of the most important initiatives on the Italian scene, able to bring together different realities to make the Italian and European agri-food industry great. At the end of the meeting, guests and press took part in a pure product tasting led by sommelier Noemi Brambilla, which was followed by a light lunch with a dedicated menu.
