Report on BPs on quality schemes and consumer Health Molise Region

Agriculture is a fundamental component of the Italian national economic system and it also has a significant impact on the Molise economy. Today, however, also as a result of the crises that have hit some large industrial groups in the agri-food sector and especially in view of the COVID-19 emergency, which unfortunately did not spare the sector, Molise’s agri-food sector is also in a difficult situation. Nevertheless, the common commitment, shared by all those involved in the local development of the Molise territory, is to identify the critical points and support and relaunch the agri-food sector through the adoption of credible and long-term tools and projects that can give concrete answers to the operators of the supply chain.

The agri-food processing system plays a significant role in the Molise regional agricultural scenario. Based on the strong expansion that began in the 1990s, the last official data report that the complex of processing activities operating in Molise involves around 27.427 farms , with the VA of the food industry, equal to 114 million euros, represents 2,1% of the total regional VA (+18% compared to 2007), corresponding to 0,5% of the national VA.
Moreover, the regional offer is characterized by a high degree of distinctiveness that stems from the rich basket of quality products, closely linked to the history and traditions of the territory. However, this potential is still largely under-exploited, as demonstrated by the few products that have been awarded by the EU label. The regional basket is actually very rich and can count on 159 traditional products, most of which belong to the livestock, fresh pasta and vegetable products in their natural or processed state.
