Italy;Marche, Coldiretti launches label proposal for origin of Olive Oil

On Sunday, Coldiretti Ascoli-Fermo will collect signatures in Grottammare in support of labels indicating the origin of olive oil. “Aside from a DOP olive oil (from protected origin), three traditional food oils, an IGP (protected geographic indication) coming soon and two oil cities, over half of oil in the Marche region is produced in the province of Ascoli Piceno,” explained the president Marco Maroni.

“This is a patrimony that must be defended from those who think they can use the Made in Italy name by selling oil obtained from olives coming from who knows where. This is a transparency issue for consumers, but also for defending the work of agricultural companies.” The start of mobilization for the oil label will take place as part of the province’s traditional day of “Thanksgiving.” (AGI)
