This international association promotes food and wine culture while defending agricultural biodiversity. It opposes the standardization of taste, encourages the need for consumer information, protects cultural identities and gastronomic traditions, safeguards food, cultivation and processing techniques inherited from tradition, and works to uphold domestics and wild animal species.
These values are very much in line with eating well and spending quality time over the breakfast, lunch or dinner table with family and friends -
