The very first Italian gelato portal, for both gelato makers and gelato lovers
. . . .
At the International Gelato Exhibition (MIG) in Longarone, there will be a European debate about the rules and their applicability in ice cream parlors, as there are way too many differences.
The goal is to obtain homogeneous standards for all the countries.
“This initiative is committed to protecting not only the professionalism of the craft ice cream makers but also the consumers” stated Giorgio Balzan, President of Longarone Fiere.
“Food safety and official controls in the EU” will be the focus of this annual meeting organized by Longarone Fiere.
This topic is of great relevance and it often creates problems to ice cream maker as the rules are complicated and strict, that also means hard to apply.
The meeting will be hold on Monday, 4th December at 2.30PM at Longarone Fiere Conference Center.
Officials from Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Austria, Belgium, Croatia and Slovenia will take part to this meeting to try and reach the goal.
“With this initiative Longarone Fiere works hard to give the craft ice cream makers an annual opportunity to keep themselves professionally updated. This helps to protect the consumers too” said Giorgio Balzan, the President.
Another focus point will be about the controls. Their aim should be to prevent rather than to repress, as it is often happening nowadays. This problem often leads to negative consequences for the ice cream parlors.
It is the first time that food inspectors from different countries meet to understand how the same EU regulations are applied. These rules appear in the so-called “hygiene packet”, from 2004, that gives the guide lines for food hygiene and safety and official controls.
The results will be brought to the attention of to the European Parliament in order to homogenize these regulations and to excise all the problems pointed out by the different European delegates.
The meeting is organized by Longarone Fiere in cooperation with Veneto Unpisi (Italian National Union for Health Inspectors).
It will be coordinated by Achille Barnabò, Prevention Technician of the Ulss Belluno.
It will be free and open to everyone and the registration can be done online.
