MEDITERRA 2007

Identity and quality of mediterranean foodstuffs

Mediterra has focused this first edition on the questions of the identity, safety and quality of Mediterranean foodstuffs, thus highlighting the impact of designations of origin as a quality guarantee and a shield for many Mediterranean countries against imitation and relocation. The work presents a rigorous analysis of the risks in this field as well as consumer perceptions in order to specify the role played by identity, safety and quality in market construction. The milk industry is then taken as an example to illustrate future prospects and the policies implemented by a number of Mediterranean countries. The CIHEAM annual report, now entitled Mediterra, is a reference document which has been published since 1999 and reflects the development of the agricultural sectors in the countries bordering the Mediterranean. Maps, charts and tables provide details of the agricultural development indicators. Mediterra is published in five languages (French, English, Spanish, Arabic and Italian) and provides a basis for discussion and decision-making by policymakers and professionals. Mr. Bertrand Hervieu, the current Secretary-General of the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), is the scientific editor of Mediterra. The CIHEAM is an intergovernmental organisation, which was established in 1962 and now has thirteen Member States in the Mediterranean basin; it has gradually come to be recognised as an authority in the fields of agriculture, food and rural development in the Mediterranean region.

CIHEAM

Established in 1962, the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM) is an intergovernmental organisation composed of thirteen Member States (Albania, Algeria, Egypt, France, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey).
As a key player in multilateral cooperation in the fields of agriculture, food, fisheries and rural territories, its missions revolve around four main objectives:
– Protection of the planet by combating waste in all its forms including waste of knowledge and
know-how;
– Food and nutrition security by boosting sustainable agriculture and food;
– Inclusive development by investing in new generations and fragile territories;
– Prevention of crises and resilience of territories.
The CIHEAM Action Plan for the Mediterranean 2025 (CAPMED 2025) that falls within the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development of the United Nations is based on these four lines. The CIHEAM carries out its missions through the tools of specialised training, network research, cooperation, technical assistance but also political dialogue and partnerships.
