We and other importers of Italian food were invited, the other day, by Luca Zaia, the Italian Minister of Agriculture, at Del Posto. Mr. Zaia came with a basket full of items he purchased at a nearby store full of “Italian Sounding” products. He said that out of 10 products with a made in Italy label, only 1 is really made in Italy. He promised that his Ministery will even seek legal action against any manufacturer/merchant who sells “Italian Sounding” products.
May Justice be done!
