On 5 February 2019 the Geographical Indications Kick-Off Meeting was held in Siena, a technical meeting organized by the Qualivita Foundation in collaboration with Aicig, Federdoc, Prima, Inao, Origen España, OriGIn and with the patronage of the Municipality of Siena, which compared the experiences of the Consortia for the protection of Geographical Indications to define a new strategic proposal to support the development of the sector in the national and European context. The initiative involved the operators of the sector (Consortia, producer organizations, Regions, Ministry and bodies closely linked to the world of PGI DOP) who shared over 50 interventions in the 5 central themes for the development of the sector.
The Geographical Indications Kick-Off Meeting was organized in 5 work sessions in plenary to give voice to the direct experiences of the sector operators and in particular directors and representatives of the Consortia, through 3-minute interventions to give space to the largest number of actors and allow the collection of a wide chorus of suggestions, experiences and proposals. All contributions were collected in a summary document that was submitted to policy makers and disseminated and shared with all the actors in the system.
