The prize awarded by Antonio Alvaro, President of Gal Batir and Flag of Stretto 2, was accepted by the president of the consortium Sebastiano Fortunato, who commented: "we are very pleased with this recognition." The plate reads "Per continuare a portare avanti, nel mondo, il pomodoro di Pachino IGP. E garantire la denominazione d'origine a dispetto delle frodi" (To continue promoting PGI tomatoes from Pachino all over the world. And guarantee the designation of origin despite the frauds)

"It has been a wonderful experience that has repaid us of the many sacrifices made day after day to maintain the high standards of a product known in most of the world. We were awarded together with other two consortia, that of potatoes from Sila and that of lemons from Sorrento. Our meeting was the perfect moment to share our experience and grow together and we hope we can do it again to collaborate and work in the interest of Italian products." 

"We would like to thank all the organizers and Vittorio Caminiti, president of Accademia del Bergamotto. Bergamot oranges boast excellent organoleptic qualities and will soon obtain the PGI mark."

"In general, the feeling I got in Reggio Calabria was one of great warmth towards us. Being considered a model is very gratifying and I would like to share the prize with every single producer, packager and all those part of our consortium, who work hard every day to support PGI tomatoes from Pachino. These recognitions also come with great responsibility, which we welcome so that the good name and great quality of our products can continue to precede us wherever our job will take us."
