Trentino has deposited a ‘Marchio Qualità Trentino’ (Trentino Quality Brand) which is a quality brand owned by the Autonomous Province of Trento and created in order to identify the origin and quality of food products from Trentino and their production process. This brand guarantees a choice of foods and beverages that gives priority to organic, local, and fair trade products, to energy and water saving, to the selection of green, 0-Km products, and to environmental information, communication, and education, in order to involve the customer in good environmental practices. In other words ‘Marchio Qualità Trentino’ contributes to certifying Trentino’s approach to eco-sustainability.

Among the wide range of sustainable food-related offers, it is variety that strikes you first. Organic fruits, fine wines, craft beer, olive oil, pasta, beef and several unique kinds of cheese are all grown or made in Trentino using traditional food processing methods and respecting strict sustainability codes. Trentino is rich in traditions, terrain and microclimates that explain the diversity in food culture. Many of the Trentino products are awarded the DOP (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) certificate, which ascertains quality and verifies both the purity and authenticity of the raw ingredients. Each area in Trentino offers signature products.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Garda Lake Garda Lake’s balmy microclimate creates an exquisite and very particular kind of olive oil, which is fruity, light and brilliantly green. To earn its DOP status, 80% of its olives must come from the Casaliva, Frantoio, Pendolino, and Leccino varieties. Trentino’s cheeses The mountain dairies manufacture a mouthwatering range of cheeses. Much of it is made with hay-milk, produced by cows fed exclusively on grass or hay, and it contains only milk, rennet and salt. Among the cheeses to try are Puzzone di Moena, Vezzena and Trentingrana DOP. Berries from Sant’Orsola Based in Pergine Valsugana, the Sant’Orsola lab has grown from a small collective of farmers, to become a major force in European fruit production. Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, redcurrants, and cherries, are all part of the mix. Val di Gresta’s organic vegetables The Val di Gresta is the home of Trentino’s organic vegetable gardens. Wide terracing, rich soils and a favourable climate provide a natural forcing house for potatoes, carrots, cabbages and many other delicious vegetables.
