There has been a significant problem with other countries creating or selling “fake” Italian foods. Many Italians are wanting to fight against other countries producing these products. “The government’s plan for the extraordinary promotion of Italian products this year “envisages action to defend brands and quality and origin certifications, and to fight Italian sounding products” like Parmesan, he said.” The foreign minister has been very outspoken about the conflict and how it is affecting the Italian market. “Di Maio said that “damaging practices, like Italian sounding (products), have reached worrying proportions, especially in the agri-food sector”.” This use of Italian sounding foods by other countries can be detrimental to the Italian market and it can affect how people think of Italian foods. If a consumer does not know the difference between authentic Italian products and Italian sounding product then they might get the wrong thing thinking it is actual Italian food. This can lead them to having a bad experience and thinking that authentic Italian food is bad.
