Made in Italy and Slovenia case. De Nigris: "Unacceptable proposal"
The issue is the center of the work of the Environment Commission of the European Parliament
“The unacceptable Slovenian proposal for the recognition of a balsamic vinegar produced outside Italy represents yet another attack on Made in Italy”. This is how Armando de Nigris, Advisor of the European Commission for the environment, public health and food safety reports.
“We are facing a double threat. The Slovenian proposal proves to be a danger above all for the agri-food sector which in Made in Italy bases its recognition abroad", reports the Honorable Fulvio Martusciello, member of the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Commission of the European Parliament, "but also represents an attack on the Italian productive fabric and on the thousands of families who work in the sector and in the service sector throughout the peninsula".
These are hours of intense work for Martusciello and De Nigris to try to secure once again a sector of vital importance for our economy.
