Through the "sì.mediterraneo" project, developed in collaboration with the Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine of the Federico II University of Naples and the contribution of the Nutrition Advisory Board, we promote correct eating habits in order to favour the knowledge and adoption of the Mediterranean Diet.

More than 7,300 Barilla People have been involved in the "sì.mediterraneo" healthy eating education programme.

We develop information campaigns that are in line with our “Good for You, Good for the Planetpurpose and collaboration projects with our trading partner to make people aware of sustainable and waste-free consumption models.

Initiatives for the dissemination of the Mediterranean lifestyle have been launched with retailers and community catering players: projects are in progress with Ericsson, Felsinea Ristorazione and Costa Crociere.

In 2016 we established a global partnership with our customer Carrefour to carry out an awareness campaign on food waste amongst consumers. The project will be implemented in Carrefour hypermarkets in Italy at the beginning of 2017, and it will be later exported to other European countries.
We have launched a new campaign in Belgium and Germany with video interviews to the Barilla brothers to circulate important messages of our “Good for You, Good for the Planet” purpose.
In Slovenia and Croatia we proposed a multi-brand campaign in different points of sale on the “Good for You, Good for the Planet” messages.
