The Mediterranean Diet Roundtable® (MDR) is a think-tank designed to inform, inspire and promote the appreciation of ingredients and cuisines distinctive of the Mediterranean region, and to translate the benefits of the Mediterranean Diet into commercial opportunities within the United States.
The Mediterranean Diet has been recognized by UNESCO as a Global Intangible Cultural Heritage (2010), a symbol of a unique synergy between nature and the culinary culture distinctive of the Mediterranean countries. This designation is regarded as a universal value worldwide. The MDR is a healthy, delicious and sustainable choice for the planet, as well as a meaningful way to reduce obesity and other diseases in America.
The MDR is playing a key role in repositioning the Mediterranean Diet as a competitive driving force to shape the offerings in high volume commercial and non-commercial food services, as well as to retailers and restaurants. By attending our programs, you can learn more about the #1 diet in the United States from world-class scholars and insights from leading food industry icons!
