University of Gastronomic Sciences 

Pollenzo, Italy

Through the collaboration with the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo, for the first time in the Company's history, we became supporters of a scholarship.

The University of Gastronomic Sciences, founded in 2004 by the international non-profit association Slow Food is a ministerially recognized, private non-profit institution.

Its goal is to create an international research and education center for those working on renewing farming methods, protecting biodiversity, and building an organic relationship between gastronomy and agricultural science.

The university forms gastronomes, new professional figures with multi-disciplinary skills and knowledge in the fields of science, culture, politics, economics and ecology of food, working to apply them to production, distribution and sustainable consumption.

Why did we decide to finance a scholarship?

Because we believe that developing new projects in collaboration with the academic world creates new opportunities across the Food & Nutrition industry, and is an investment in the future of IMCD.
