De.Co. that is “Denominazione Comunale” is a recognition to characteristic gastronomic products created in a specific district
De.Co is only for products with an important identity value for a community and it is set up by a resolution adopted by a city council which has to follow simple rules, like the place of birth and creation of a product.
This resolution has to be signed by the mayor and a notary.
De.Co is so both an instrument to preserve some local quality products and a way to allow consumer to recognize them.
De.Co preserves the uniqueness of the cultural heritage and of the local traditions.
