The True Italian Taste project is a large-scale educational and promotional initiative aimed at safeguarding authentic Italian food products in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The campaign’s primary objectives are to raise awareness of the benefits and characteristics of authentic Italian products and to educate consumers about the important connection between these authentic Italian ingredients and the specific geographic areas in which they are produced.
The project, funded and promoted by the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, is being executed by a global network of Italian chambers of commerce, including the Italy-American Chamber of Commerce in New York, and its eight peer chambers in North America (Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Mexico City).
