Pandolea’s ini­tia­tive Bruschetta vs Merendina” returns to Italy on October 28th. The National Olive Oil Women Association launches the project that involves schools to edu­cate chil­dren and all peo­ple to adopt good and healty food habits and to sup­port the bat­tle againts food adul­ter­ation. The group offers chil­dren bread and oil as a health­ier snack instead of indus­tri­ally pro­duced ones.

For this year edi­tion, Pandolea will be joined and sup­ported in its efforts by the State Forestry Corps (Corpo Forestale dello Stato) and by the Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies (Ministero delle Politiche Agricole, Alimentari e Forestali) and by the local schools and author­i­ties.

Pandolea’s ini­tia­tives will fol­low the Italian penin­sula from South to North. The first leg will be held in Sicily, at the end of October, in Marsala. The inau­gural date will also be the occa­sion for the con­gress Stop Frauds: Extra Virgin Means Quality,” with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from State Forestry Corps, Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies, Trapani Council and Pandolea.

In November there will be three dates: The first one will be in Calabria at the Torchia mill, in Catanzaro. The sec­ond one will be in the Marche region, at the Abbruzzetti mill near Fermo and Ascoli Piceno, and the third will be in Abruzzo at the Montecchia mill, near Teramo. A final event is sched­uled in Veneto in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Agricultural School of Conegliano.

The meet­ings will be focused about themes such as a right and healty nutri­tion, the bat­tle against food adul­ter­ation and the right labelling pro­ce­dures. Nutrition edu­ca­tion is a main com­mitt­ment that Pandolea choose to under­take towards the young gen­er­a­tion” Pandolea’s President Loriana Abbruzzetti said. Our ini­tia­tives aim to let us redis­cover our ancient and healhy food habits and to pre­serve the real Italian prod­ucts against frauds and adul­ter­ation; and we think we should start this form the school desks.”
