Marche Export Consortium of Typical Agricultural and Food Products
COMPAT Consortium safeguarding traditional fragrances and flavours
The Marche region evokes images of lush green countryside, creative artisans, small, enchanting hamlets and deep-rooted traditions. This backdrop, a thriving territory that produces fine DOC wines (registered designation of origin) and where the countryside has since olden days, always been fertile and generous, led to the foundation of COMPAT - a consortium whose aim is to promote the top food and wine products of the Marche on the international market. COMPAT does not operate by purchasing products from consortium members
and then reselling them.
On the contrary, members work together as a consortium to promote their products and sell them directly to overseas markets that would otherwise be difficult for them to reach. The objective that these small and medium-sized agricultural and food companies have set themselves is to promote the typical local products of the Marche, maintaining
top-quality traditional production and introducing it
onto overseas markets.
COMPAT introduces the top-quality
food products of the Marche to the world
The companies that make up the COMPAT consortium are not
high-flying industries with large premises, but rather small
artisan workshops that make quality products, carefully
monitoring all production phases. In other words, companies
that have rediscovered the traditional processing methods
and recipes that “grandma” used and that aim to once again
offer the genuine forgotten flavours of local culinary
This is because their production is founded on
a deep nowledge and respect for the resources of the
countryside and an extremely close relationship with the territory they operate in.
It is precisely this indissoluble link between the typicality of the products and the territory they are produced in that makes them “first-rate products” in the panorama of Italian food and
Marche, the heart of Italy
Central Italy is one of the most famous and topical places in the world. Colourful rural landscapes, the flavour of traditional cuisine, small hilltop villages and towns where time seems to have stood still - the Marche region offers all this and so much more.
The region has resources of extraordinary quality that are still largely unknown and for this very reason, even more genuine and precious. It is a hidden pearl that has silently managed to maintain its traditions, which attentive tourists and top gastronomists are slowly beginning to discover.
Thanks to its ideal position along the Mid-Adriatic coast, the Marche has always been a meeting place for different cultures and civilisations and as well as unforgettable views, this perfect balance between man and nature, has led to the creation of delicious products. The sea, countryside, mountains and hills that slope gently to the sea - this is what the Marche region offers. It is a territory marked by ancient traditions and food and wine specialities, where fortresses and castles are hidden away amid a variety of enchanting landscapes that have always been celebrated by writers and poets alike.
So blessed by God
with beauty, variety, fertility,
amid these protecting mountains that slope gently,
amid these all-embracing seas,
amid these welcoming hills,
amid these valleys that smile...
