AIDEPI represents an industrial history to hand down to the future and to export all over the world.
In order to defend the Italian Confectionery and Pasta tradition, AIDEPI takes care of the interests of its members on a national and international level, liaising with institutions and administrations, either about the sector's regulations' development, or as a propeller for activities aimed to protect and promote its products.
The Association's mission is essentially conveyed by:
- Promoting the continuous development of a quality-based culture of business skills, directed not only towards consumers, but also towards employees, with particular attention to work safety conditions, and also on a perspective of social responsibility and sustainable development, throughout the direct involvement of members in workshops, seminars, training days, guidelines for the enforcement of regulations and every other instrument that can provide support to the associated companies.
- Representing and promoting the embodied values of the associated enterprises: quality and food safety of the industrial products, protection and valorization of the national tradition, and information transparency to consumers.
- Supporting the competitiveness of members through the promotion of a regulatory framework enabling the Italian industries to operate – on a production and commercial level - on equal terms with foreign competitors, thus facing with foreign markets without any drawback.
- Spreading out the knowledge and experience of its products.
