Qualivita has produced this work with the aim of providing a concise overview of the Geographical Indications system, highlighting its value both in economic terms and as a business model that can protect producers, consumers and territories of origin, within a regulatory framework that offers effective control tools.
The account of Aceto Balsamico di Modena PGI, demonstrates the success of a supply chain that best represents the valorisation of a high-quality product with roots and ancient traditions, but which saw business explode in just a few years, mainly thanks to the PGI recognition and promotion and protection in markets around the world.
Qualivita’s objective is to disseminate knowledge on Geographical Indications, at a time when companies in countries where this rural development model it is less present are starting to take interest in it, with the conviction that Italian PDO PGI products can be a reference for creating quality agricultural models associated to European certifications.
