Guaranteeing the quality of agri-food products is one of the main objectives of European policies in the context of rural development. Even in Italy, the protection of quality is one of the cardinal principles of the agri-food policy, as it is a fundamental tool for protecting numerous products with registered trademarks. The implementation of these principles also includes the strict rules that provide for the labeling of products, which provides for the mandatory indication of the origin of the raw material, in particular for some agricultural products.
The main international organisations such as FAO and Greenpeace, and all those who care about the health of the planet, encourage more and more often sustainability and sustainable agriculture: what does this type of agriculture consist of and why is it so important for the planet and the future generations?
