The educational message
A healthy lifestyle and, in particular, a healthy diet is the basis of “Well-Being” psychophysical of each of us. The search for a balanced diet free from rigid patterns and monotonous, is the pillar of our scientific thought. ”Besides the diet … in view of a conscious consumption …” This is, in short, the behavioral-educational message that we want to promote the protection of health and the environment in which we live.
Our power is the result of a complex interaction between biological signals genetically encoded and sensory experiences, emotional and cultural benefits the environment in which we grew up and where we live; a social and environmental context that, as a result of the radical changes undergone in the last fifty years, has contributed to the significant increase of metabolic-degenerative diseases (obesity, diabetes, cancer, anorexia, etc). To prevent and treat these diseases is essential to move towards a sustainable consumption, face to respect the ecosystem and projected towards the search for quality food, as well as the right quantities; consumption that is the result of knowledge gained, but also of choices and behaviors that take into account the traditions, customs and practices that constitute the gastronomic fine cuisine of a region.
Food education in step with the times can not overlook anything.
We firmly believe in the combination food-culture, because behind every food choice there is the taste, flavors, history, customs, traditions that sink in the ancient roots of a people. For this, our activities are directed to bring out the food culture in a broad approach to involvement. We believe that the best work is done in teams, creating a broad network of alliances among the best productive forces, cultural and scientific of our country.
