Legacoop proposes ‘Pact’ to valorise key lifestyle choice

(ANSA) – The UNESCO-listed famously healthy Mediterranean Diet is followed by only one in 10 Italians, according to Legacoop Alimentare in a report Wednesday.

The healthy elixir and emblems of the Italian lifestyle boasts only 13% of Italian exponents, they said.

Legacoop proposed a ‘pact’ to valorise the diet more.

“The Mediterranean Diet is a lifestyle choice, it’s the emblem of Italian wellbeing. It’s the value of farm and fishing production which interfaces with our culture and history.

And it also has an important value for food sustainability,” said Federcoop Agroalimentare President Cristian Maretti at the Rome event “The Med Diet between sport, health and cooperation”.
