Since 2003, the Socioeconomic Observatory has been studying and documenting the economic, legislative and communicative world of Italian PDO, PGI, TSG products, the results of which are published in a Report.
Producing a Report that comprehensively represents the framework of certified designation of origin productions, is a work that requires great commitment and it poses many operational difficulties.
In order to overcome a large part of these, the Qualivita Foundation has always chosen to carry out a census survey on:
- operators in the upstream supply chain, Protection Consortia or producers’ Associations, regarding the economic and communication aspects;
- regulatory changes, for the legislative aspect;
- major newspapers and social networks, for the communication aspect.
These three different sources permit a more in-depth and more critical understanding of the quality agri-food sector.
