Last year has been full of achievements for Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI. Its numbers are a testimony to its significant growth under various aspects and this is further confirmed by the latest Qualivita-Ismea 2017 report. A yearly investigation which analyses the most important social and economic phenomena within the certified food quality division.
