The objectives of the Consortium statute are the protection and promotion of the Bella di Cerignola table olive variety and its protected designation of origin, La Bella della Daunia, in Italy and abroad.
Without a doubt, the Consortium is called upon to perform surveillance and control activities on the behalf of the Ministry. It protects and valorizes the typical qualities and special features of the product and guarantees constant improvement in the quality of consumer protection.
The Consortium implements controls through a supervisory agent who operates throughout Italy, taking samples and sending these to laboratories authorized by the Ministry of Agricultural and Forestry Affairs.
The supervisory agent notifies competent authorities of any infractions and/or abuses found during activities.
