PDO Preview – new Italian PDO, PGI and TSG agri-food products
PDO Preview was the first national initiative to provide direct information about the new Italian agri-food products that were added each year to the list of PDOs, PGIs and TSGs already registered by the European Union. PDO Preview provided concrete support during the start-up stage of new designations, facilitating the relationship between operators, distribution channels and the media, with the aim of implementing an effective marketing and promotion strategy. For each event that was organised to present the new Geographical Indications (GI), the Qualivita Foundation compiled a PDO Preview Compendium (Qualivita Notebook series), an educational publication containing the technical-economic and descriptive fact sheets of each product being presented. The Compendiums were an effective dissemination tool, as well as an in-depth editorial support for of all those involved, and they were accompanied by ad hoc communication activities for the new Italian PDO, PGI and TSG products.
