Activity 

For consumers today, the priorities are to recognize theauthenticity of valuesthat are hidden behind the product chains. All DOS productions are distinguished by theirsstrong bond with the landand each with its own uniqueness contributes to spreading the traditions and thecultureof healthy living on an island, Sicily, located in the heart of the Mediterranean sea.

It is important to note that the image of Sicily is currently making a comeback thanks also to an increase in tourism that appreciates and exportsgastronomic valueslinked to our land.

The consumer trend is changing, Italy and Sicily in particular are experiencing a revival of all those values linked to the traditions of the earth (see the return to the consumption of ancient grains). The goal for DOS must be to enter the tables of Italians asstandard bearer of the taste for healthy living.

The recognition of what has been stated is governed by the use of the quality mark of the DOP, IGP and QS, flanked by our logo which must be recognizable by the consumer in order to strengthen the ability to penetrate the identity of the DOS Sicilia Consortium.
