Through a variety of initiatives, it promotes gastronomic culture, develops taste education, conserves agricultural biodiversity and protects traditional foods at risk of extinction. It has 80,000 members in 100 countries. Its main offices, situated in Bra (Cuneo), a small town in southern Piedmont, employ about 100 people.
