What are consortia?
I Consorzi di tutela born as voluntary associations, non-profit, regulated by Article 2602 of the Civil Code, promoted by the economic operators involved in the individual supply chains with the specific function of protecting the agri-food products PDO and PGI. These products, considered worthy of particular legal protection, are included in specific quality regimes established and regulated by EU legislation, and are entered in the European register of PDOs (Protected Designations of Origin) and PGIs (Protected Geographical Indications).
What is the function of a consorzio?
What protection activities can consortia undertake?
(a) making proposals for regulatory framework and carrying out advisory tasks related to the product concerned;
(b) define programmes containing structural and technical adjustment measures aimed at improving the quality of production in terms of health and hygiene safety, chemical, physical, organoleptic and nutritional characteristics of the product marketed;
(c) to promote the adoption of appropriate resolutions containing agreements, approved by Mipaaf and free of any anti-competitive content, between economic operators benefiting from the same GI and aiming at a correct production planning according to market needs;
d) collaborate, according to the directives issued by Mipaaf, in the supervision, protection and safeguard of the PDO and PGI from abuses, acts of unfair competition, counterfeiting, improper use of the protected names and conduct in any case prohibited by law; this activity is carried out at every level and towards anyone at any stage of production, processing and trade.
In order to assist the competent institutions in the pursuit of the above objectives, the Ministerial Decree of 12 October 2000 establishes a system of cooperation between consortia bodies and the Central Inspectorate for Fraud Prevention (ICQRF).
