Bellucci Premium replies to an article that details the Italian Prime Minister’s demand for the United Nations to take into account issues with food security and the lack of attention it receives from global policy makers.

According to a NASDAQ article published on September 25th titled “Italy Calls for Food Security to Be U.N. Priority,” Italy’s Prime Minister Enrico Letta made a request for food security to be a priority at the United Nations General Assembly.

Letta expressed his concern in the article and said, “We should address the root causes of the ills afflicting our world rather than limit ourselves to the side effects.” Letta wants to come to a global agreement on how the world’s leaders can take the issue of food security.

The article details how Letta hopes to expose the issue at the world fair in Milan in 2015. This is a way to get the idea off the ground while exposing it to many sets of eyes. The expo is estimated to draw over 20 million people, many of whom have interest in issues such as food security. According to the article, “The event should be seized upon to create a Milan Protocol, modelled on the Kyoto Protocol of the late 1990s that covers environmental issues, with nutritional education, sustainable farming practices and food waste as its cardinal points, according to the Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition.”

Since Italy is the site of many food-related agencies for the United Nations, it is a good country to take a leadership role in this issue, says the article. Natalie Sexenain, marketing manager for Tuscan olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, hopes that there is a stronger stance on food related policies in not only Italy, but also globally. “It is nice to see that Italian Prime Minister Letta has taken a stance on this issue. At Bellucci Premium, we hope in the issue eventually receives support on a global level."

Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
