The corner will be coordinated by chef Imai from Pepe Rosso,  one of the Japanese Ambassador for the second year of the project “Arigat-EU”.
The project “Arigat-EU, the authentic deli meat from Europe” which started in February 2018, combines three consortia for the protection of PDO and PGI deli meats, co-funded by the European Union and aimed at the Japanese market. The campaign involves the promotion of these Italian delicatessen excellences: Mortadella Bologna PGI Salamini Italiani alla Cacciatora PDO, Zampone Modena PGI, and Cotechino Modena PGI. The chief objective is to increase the level of knowledge and recognition of European quality labels and improve consumer awareness in terms of food safety, traceability, tradition, authenticity, nutritional, health and sustainability aspects. Also, through the project, it will be possible to optimize the image of EU agricultural products outside the EU, particularly in the Japanese market, and strengthen the recognition of the Union quality schemes for authentic, non-counterfeit products.
