Today, as every October 16th, the World Food Day and do you know why? The anniversary was announced in 1979, during the 20th General Conference of the FAO (United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization) precisely to commemorate the day it was founded, October 16, 1945. The goal of World Food Day? It's not just one, there are several. The first is that of raise awareness, inform and find solutions to problems related to malnutrition, hunger, poverty, food security; the second is precisely to push people to find solutions, to Act for the sake of common health.
Each year the issues that are addressed mainly revolve around the theme of agriculture in fact, not surprisingly, this year too the focus will be precisely this: transform agri-food systems to improve production, the environment and the quality of life.

Initiatives for World Food Day 2021
There are many initiatives and activities related to World Food Day 2021, today we will tell you about two in particular.

Action Against Hunger
"Never go hungry again"Is the manifesto drawn up by Action Against Hunger together with great artists and celebrities such as Tiziano Ferro, Federica Pellegrini, Dario Vergassola, Marco Cappato, Chiara Maci and many others for raise awareness as many people as possible to make ethical and socially responsible choices. "With a planet that is, in fact, capable of producing enough food for all, long-available, effective and low-cost cures against child malnutrition, cooperation projects capable of realizing the self-sufficiency of vulnerable communities, we are the first generation in history that can eliminate hunger – he has declared Simone Garroni, general manager of Action Against Hunger -. Yet, in the last five years, hunger has returned to grow, affirming itself, in Italy and in the world, as a contemporary plague: 811 million people suffer from hunger and over 2 million children die every year due to malnutrition. It is unacceptable! Hunger is man-made and our leaders must have more courage and demonstrate the political will to fight its underlying reasons: conflicts, inequalities and climate change". The manifesto also wants to be a starting point and food for thought for all national and international leaders to carry out concrete actions and interventions in compliance with global needs.

FICO Eataly Bologna
World Food Day also takes on one sustainable look, indeed FIG Eataly Bologna, the food theme park, will host from 14 October to 17 October events and show cooking focused on the "recovery kitchen". The chefs of FICO restaurants will teach you how to reduce food waste in the kitchen of your own home with a view to reuse, zero waste and sustainability. The three days is aimed at raise awareness visitors on the amount of food that is discarded every day in the kitchen, do you think that almost8% of the food you buy is thrown away (Adoc data). Impressive, isn't it? And what is even more shocking is that in the more affluent countries there is a tendency to discard the amount of food necessary to feed almost a billion people.

Some FAO figures
The latest FAO report on food safety (SOFI 2021) draws us a shocking scenario: in the last year the number of people suffering from hunger has increased considerably, currently there are some 161 million worldwide. The causes? They are many. Wars, climate change, social and gender inequalities,… For example, the Global report on Food Crisis 2021 explains that 6 out of 10 people (among those who suffer from hunger) live in war zones.

What can we do to reduce waste?
191901 "src =" https://www.salepepe.it/files/2021/10/scaricare-app-@salepepe.jpg "width =" 210 "style =" float: left;In our own small way, we can help reduce waste and prevent bakeries, bars and restaurants from throwing away leftover food. Like? Of course with technology! There are several smartphone apps that you can download as To Good To Go which, with more than 80,000 affiliated stores around the world, gives merchants the opportunity to sell their unsold goods of the day at a reduced price. Last minute under the house, instead, it is an application that allows merchants to report foods with a short expiry date, those foods that could not be sold in the store but still too good to be discarded, the app works in the same way myFOODY. Or, Bring The Food, another very useful app that boasts collaboration with the Banco Alimentare Foundation which is committed to recovering all the surplus food from large-scale distribution, canteens and restaurants to provide it to the most needy through non-profit organizations.

World Food Day: Bottura, Ambassador against food waste – Italian Cuisine

Grundig together with the United Nations against food waste. Massimo Bottura is the exceptional Ambassador of the awareness campaign that started on 29 September, which culminates today for World Food Day

Today is the World Food Day. Grundig, joined the United Nations to combat food waste, throwing a communication and awareness campaign aimed at promoting better awareness on this global issue. The awareness campaign revolved around two days of globally recognized celebrations established by FAO (the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations): the International Day of Awareness Raising on Food Losses and Waste, which was celebrated on 29 September and World Food Day, which takes place today. This day is aimed at raising public awareness on the issues of poverty, hunger and malnutrition.

Campaign objectives

The aim is therefore to create a common conscience to highlight food waste as a theme closely linked to the emission of greenhouse gases and, consequently, to climate change. According to official data on the issue of food waste released by the UN in its "The Food Waste Index Report 2021", 8-10% of global greenhouse gas emissions are associated with uneaten food: food waste is, therefore, everyone's problem and starts from the home environment.

How to act, then?

With a strong Call to Action, Grundig invites everyone to join the campaign "THE MORE WE ARE, THE MORE WE HALVE" or "THE MORE WE ARE, THE MORE WE HALVE". As the United Nations reports, we are all responsible for our planet: only by going together in the direction of responsibility can global change be brought about. The campaign aims to inspire, educate, raise awareness and engage people, encouraging them to take action. It is a call to action that wants to encourage everyone to join the cause, taking small responsible actions on a daily basis, starting from your home environment.

An exceptional Brand Ambassador

AND Massimo Bottura is the Brand Ambassador of this campaign. The Chef patron of the Osteria Francescana, social activist, is the most representative spokesperson for the appeal: Bottura was in fact recently appointed UNEP Goodwill Ambassador (Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Environment Program) with the aim of stepping up the fight against food waste and loss around the world.


How the campaign develops

The Awareness Campaign developed on digital and social channels of the HQ and the countries where the brand operates on September 29, where the Video Announcement by Massimo Bottura with 7 video animations containing some reflections on food waste and simple but fundamental suggestions on how it is possible to fight it starting from your child. Each pill Video highlighted a different facet of domestic food waste: or the problem of food waste and leftovers, the huge amount of food that is thrown away because it is aesthetically unattractive or because it is too close to the expiration date. In these contents, the consumer becomes aware of the urgency of the problem, through official data released by the UN: we thus discover that by reducing food waste, we could eliminate more than 8% of global gas emissions, which every person wastes 121 kg of food per year, that 17% of food destined for consumption is wasted and other disconcerting data. The idea is also that to suggest solutions inspiring people to make small conscious gestures.

Grundig's commitment

The company engaged in the consumer electronics sector, which since 1945 develops products with a distinctive design and cutting-edge technology, aims to support the 12th Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of the United Nations 2030 Agenda, aimed at halving food waste by 2030. Grundig is a company historically committed to respecting and protecting environmental resources. The company can in fact boast a concrete commitment and the implementation of many projects on the topic of food waste: first of all "Respect Food" the cultural movement created to raise awareness and educate on the global problem of food waste, with which the company is an official partner, since its origins in 2016 of Food for Soul, the non-profit organization created by Massimo Bottura, which promotes social inclusion and food sustainability through the opening of refectories around the world.


Campania: between ancient and new glories, vineyards and good food – Italian Cuisine


Along the Appian Way and the Volturno River, a very green land meets non-conformist travelers: dense forests of oaks, chestnuts, oases and nature reserves, classical and Romanesque vestiges. To which are the counterpoint orchards and vineyards where forgotten fruits and centenary vines are recovered

Italy owes to Campania international tourist notoriety and testimony of ancient foods. Our thoughts turn to Amalfi coast it's at Capri. Maybe to Ischia? In truth, for over two thousand years it has been synonymous with a sparkling and cosmopolitan holiday Baia Domizia, in the northernmost part of the region. Until the seventies of the last century it was easy to meet celebrities from music and entertainment, but also avant-garde artists. Crowds of swimmers from Scandinavian countries reached Baia Domizia, so much so that topless customs were cleared on these beaches.

In Campania, the first Doc in the world
191731 "src =" https://www.salepepe.it/files/2021/10/campania-cantina-avallone-@salepepe.jpg "width =" 210 "style =" float: left;Although the official arrival is of 1989, This is where the first is to be sought Doc to the world: the ancient Romans in fact certified Falerno with the area of ​​origin and the year with sealing wax to close the amphorae. To taste it you have to go to the territory of Cellole: after centuries the Falerno severus, fortis, ardens has found its splendor in the countryside and hills near the sea thanks to the Villa Matilde Avallone company. The founder, Francesco Paolo Avallone, discovered in the 1950s the screws descendants from some glorious grapes that escaped the filossera: Aglianico and Piedirosso for the Falerno Rosso Doc, Falanghina for the Falerno Bianco Doc. Try the crus Vigna Camarato and Vigna Caracci. You can book the Torre Falerno room, created inside a former grain silos, in the Locanda del Falerno farmhouse, which the two children Maria Ida and Salvatore now manage, the ideal starting point for this journey to discover Campania Felix.

In Campania, among Romanesque remains, wines and grappas
Those interested in the glories of the Roman people immediately take a look, agreeing with the Municipality of Cellole, To the nearby Villa di San Limato for the famous mosaic floor. Going along the Via Appia Antica, the Regina Viarum, you can follow the signs for Falciano del Massico. 191726 "src =" https://www.salepepe.it/files/2021/10/campania-vino-@salepepe.jpg "width =" 210 And Regina Viarum is also the name of the cellar where to discover the third Falerno del Massico Doc, obtained from Primitivo grapes. Here we uncork the cru Vigna Barone: glasses with a dark red color, spicy and licorice aromas are obtained from strains over 70 years of age, not very productive. Herbaceous notes instead distinguish the grappa obtained from fresh pressed pomace: a treat for gourmand.

Face to face with nature
There is no lack of opportunities for those who want to dedicate themselves tophysical activity in contact with nature, by choosing one of the paths in theWWF Oasis of Monte Massico or in the Natural Reserve of Lake Falciano del Massico, of volcanic origin. In the vicinity, in season, you can see many variety of fruits forget that Vincenzo Azzurretti cultivates on his farm: from percoca Puteolana at the plum Sugar stone. TO Carinola and in the nearby village of Ventaroli, those who loveRomanesque art: the unmissable frescoes in the apse of the basilica of Santa Maria in Foro Claudio respond to the capitals of the cathedral. It takes a few minutes to reach Teano, on the slopes of the extinct volcano Roccamonfina. History books report it as the place of the meeting between Giuseppe Garibaldi and Vittorio Emanuele II, but it is the Roman theatre to deserve a stop.

Between hazelnuts, woods and good food
If time isn't running out, it's worth going up to the Cavallerizza complex and enjoy the landscape on the center and the countryside. It is precisely the countryside that reserves another delicious stage with the Mortarelle hazelnuts and i chickpeas, beige, wrinkled and very small, used to dress hand-pulled tagliolini with black pork sausage, Caserta Pelatello, and tomato. Calvi Risorta is a history book to be explored in the open: from the ruins of Cales to the crypt of the cathedral, to the painted caves. Those lucky enough to participate in particular occasions can hope to taste a ancient local dessert, the caleno glove, a pancake flavored with anisette and lemon.

Stop for a tasting in the cellar
Along winding roads surrounded by dense forests of chestnut trees of the Ufarella variety, which tradition wants to be used in soup with porcini and beans, the route leads to Pontelatone, place of origin of Casavecchia grape variety, perhaps the same from which Pliny the Elder noted the Trebulum wine. The Casavecchia di Pontelatone, Doc since 2011, it is distinguished by its intense and persistent aroma, the dry and soft flavor which is followed by sensations of licorice, carob and undergrowth. From the room of tasting of the cellar of Giuseppe Chigi, president of the Casavecchia Wine Route, you can see the medieval tower of Pontelatone, where the vine was recovered at the beginning of the twentieth century. The return to the past continues in the hamlet Treglia, the ancient Trebula, with an easy walk around the cyclopean walls built by the Samnites. The imposing access door recalls the great entrance to the Greek city of Mycenae. Those on the hunt for strong tastes, on the other hand, stop at Strangolagalli, A village of Castel di Sasso.

Wines, cheeses, pizza and tourism
In the Le Campestre farmhouse owned by Manuel Lombardi and his family, the surprise is that Casavecchia is used in the tanning of a cheese, the Roman Conciato. 191730 "src =" https://www.salepepe.it/files/2021/10/campania-formaggi-@salepepe.jpg "width =" 210The sheep's cheese are placed in amphorae closed with cork together with chili pepper, thyme serpillo, oil of variety Caiazzana And wine Old house: an ancient method of conservation, already used by the Romans. In the afternoon there is time to stroll along the paving of the historic center of Caiazzo, full of buildings with stone portals from the Aragonese period before settling in Pepe in Grani, the Franco Pepe's pizzeria, considered by the Pulitzer Prize winner Jonathan Gold the best pizza chef in the world. Those who prefer nature trails continue towards Alvignanello, along the Volturno. You can choose a path along the bends of the river staring at the images of egrets and gray herons while the more daring prefer the crossing aboard the otter, flat-bellied boat used until the 1980s. At the end you will find hospitality in the caves, the cellars dug into the rock, with a glass of Casavecchia and Caserta Pelatello sausage thanks to the CSI Association of Alvignanello which organizes trekking days on foot and on horseback.

Last stages: Limatola, Caserta and the Belvedere of San Leucio
It takes 20 minutes to reach from here Limatola along the Volturno. After visiting the workshop of the sculptor Gino Rispoli and the Castle, you can follow the scent of the annurca apple, of uniform red color and crunchy pulp, towards the apple orchards by Biagio Testa. You have to walk the quiet streets of Caserta Vecchia, the Duomo and the Castle, before facing one of the Italian wonders, Caserta. For the story of the solo Royal Palace the entire pages of the journey made up to now would be needed. Beauty lovers, if they can, end the tour at the Belvedere of San Leucio. Not far away is the Antiche Leuciane artisan shop to revive the textile splendor of this small great capital of world tourism.
