Feasibility study for a chilli pepper industrial value chain in Emilia-Romagna.

PepInER aims at creating a chilli pepper value chain in Emilia Romagna (Northern Italy) to provide the food industry with a high quality ingredient and to guarantee complete traceability. Most of the chilli pepper used as ingredient in sauces and cold cuts comes from Asia due to competitive costs and large market availability. Nevertheless, in the last decade the import of chilli pepper into the European Union has been the subject of numerous alerts.
