08 mar TAVOLA

The Golden Tavola competition awarded prizes to DRINK iT FReSH, Food Revolution by Didess (2x) and Little Cheese Farm

What do today's conscious consumers want on their plate? This is a very interesting question, to say the least, but one that is not so easy to answer.

What is certain is that producers are taking critical consumers into account.

And this was clearly shown by the entries for the Golden Tavola 2022 competition.

These tractors were soon used en masse and displaced the horses from the vineyard. Where the animals in Champagne and Bourgogne were still used on a limited scale, they completely disappeared in the Bordeaux region in the 1950s and 60s.
