Jacopo Goracci graduated in Animal Production Sciences in Pisa
and has obtained a doctorate on the link between pasture and quality of
meat of the Cinta Senese pigs.
Strong of his academic background, with his reflections there
will allow to analyze some food issues more
In a recent interview, Goracci analyzes the concept of organic,
which for us consumers is equivalent to a guarantee for the quality of the
food, but that actually deserves careful analysis.
The “bio”, which invades the shelves of the big chains of
supermarket, it is not the same that can be found only by the little ones
This is one of the many interesting points of reflection that
will turn on the debate in the forums chaired by Jacopo Goracci and by
representatives of Slow Food presidia.
