Canada recognizes importance of the raw ingredients in the dishes of Italian Cuisine, a factor that makes Italy products today truly “delicieux” for a Canadian public’s continuing love affair with Italy.
The winning factors of the Italian agri-food products are also related to the widely diverse geographical and climatic conditions that it is luckily to have and which have been formed by their culture, history and, of course, traditions. All these contribute an inimitable product so much so Italy does not fear counterfeiting.
The Mediterranean Cuisine
The “made in Italy” on the table is also a symbol in the world for the Mediterranean diet which is acknowledged worldwide as an essential part in the maintenance of good health, which is founded on eating fresh seasonal local products. Bread, pasta, fruit, vegetables, extra virgin olive oil and a glass of wine, the traditional regular meals eaten around the table have allowed Italians to keep their place among the record breaking populations of the world for longevity.
The Italian food industry has taken its cultural heritage of “to do” good food and drink without overriding its traditions.
