CIRIO PRODUCTS AWARDED BY VERACE NEAPOLITAN PIZZA ASSOCIATION
Cirio announced a cooperation with “Association Verace Pizza Neapolitan” (AVPN) , which was established in 1984 with a mission to promote and protect internationally a genuine Neapolitan pizza (verace pizza napoletana). The Pizza is a typical product made in line with the procedures designated in the international regulations for obtaining a True Neapolitan Pizza trademark.
Within the frames of this cooperation, Cirio products for gastronomy - peeled tomatoes (pelati) and Cuor di Pelato, have been registered as AVPN validated and recommended products.
