Promoting practices that contribute to reduce agricultural and food losses and household waste while adopting a healthy and accessible diet, represent a set of challenges our country and the whole world are called to face, made particularly urgent by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic crisis.

Within this framework, the Mediterranean diet can be adopted as a model to achieve the objectives of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, since its essential values stimulate responsible production and consumption, with respect to the sharp increase in the difficulty of food accessibility with consequent increase in food poverty during the pandemic.

Backed up by scientific data, this diet has been demonstrated to promote people health, while boosting food education linked to the history of the territory and the preservation of biodiversity while distributing resources in the most efficient way.
