THE EXTRAORDINARY ITALIAN TASTE

image
The Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK along with other European Italian Chambers have joined forces with the Ministry of Economic Development, the Italian Trade Agency and Assocamerestero to combat the diffusion of the Italian Sounding phenomenon. Also to encourage the export of Italian food SMEs through the conscious consumption of authentic Made in Italy products. By Italian sounding phenomenon we refer to those images, colours and names of products similar to their Italian equivalent, despite the fact that these imitations have no connection to the Italian originals but they have been made to look and sound like them. This phenomenon is not recent but actually started in the 19th century when Italians emigrated abroad to build a new life and they started opening restaurants, cafes and delis. At that time they couldn't import raw materials from Italy so they started producing their own, labelling them with names of the original ones. To read more click here
