HCMC – The Italian Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (ICHAM) organized the “True Italian Taste – Olive Oil” event last week to promote the Italian knowledge as well as the European country’s genuine products to HCMC.

“Authentic Italian olive oil, with some drops of it able make your dish taste different” was the introduction of the genuine Italian products in the event. Olive oil is among the most versatile ingredients used in Italy. It is used in the dressing of almost every dish, especially some traditional recipes.

President of ICHAM Michele D’Ercole spoke at the event that “True Italian Taste – Olive Oil” has been presented in 23 countries worldwide including Vietnam to provide broader knowledge to identify genuine Italian products. More than 40 master classes and 165 Italian food educational events were held globally between 2016 and 2018 and there are more to come from 2019 to 2020.

Italian Consul General in Vietnam Dante Brandi said that in Vietnam, the project will focus on two main subjects. The first aim is to support Vietnamese food importers to better understand regional specialties of Italy to be able to provide more diversity to Vietnamese consumers. Second, it is to provide the public with more information and know how to combine food materials from Italy to have the best diet for health.

The event was organized in collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in HCMC.
