The present communication is to invite you to the International Workshop “Biosphere Reserves branding through high quality food products and gastronomy” to discuss and exchange opinions on the topic of BR branding through high quality food products and their use in gastronomy. This workshop is organized by the Appennino Tosco Emiliano Biosphere Reserve – on behalf of UNESCO MaB Program – and it will be focused on high quality products not only as tasty, delicious and well-known products, but also products whose supply chain is ingrained and integrated with the landscape and the local communities.
