FOOD Made in Italy & Kosher

cibusBy Rossella Tercatin

In Italy, food does not mean only nutrition, recipes and industry. It represents tradition, culture, the nature of the country and the society itself.
A feature that is definitely not foreign to Jewish tradition, which also cherishes food and the concept of eating together, following the appropriate rituals, as a cornerstone of the Jewish life.

As the interest in Kosher industry and Jewish tradition raises, two conferences organized by Pagine Ebraiche, the magazine of Italian Jewry, will be held at Cibus, the International Food Exhibition in Parma.
Cibus, which will take place from May 5th to May 8th, is the key event of the Italian agri-food sector, and enables the companies committed to “Made in Italy” food to meet the major distributors, importers and professionals of domestic and foreign markets.

Among the topics which will be discussed during the occasion, will also be the project undertaken by the Italian Ministry of the Economy in cooperation with the Union of Italian Jewish Communities, to create a national “Kosher & Made in Italy” trademark to promote the best Italy can offer to the Jewish and non-Jewish world: the quality and creativity of Italian products, and the prestige and safety of a Kosher certification.
