New product labels celebrate Monaco’s history

New product labels celebrate Monaco’s history

By Stephanie Horsman - December 3, 2019

Products and experiences linked to the Grimaldi of Monaco Historic Sites can now be identified through a new label. The first group of products to receive this ‘certificate’ were recognised during the 24th Monte-Carlo Gastronomy Fair.

The new label, created by Managing Director of Monaco Inter Expo (MIE) Albert Croesi and Director of the Prince’s Palace Archives and Library Thomas Fouilleron, allows for products and experiences that are locally-tied to Monaco to be clearly identified, giving people an opportunity to discover the traditions and know-how of the ancestral Grimaldi fiefs.

“This label, which will be affixed to the products, is a natural and logical extension of the meeting of the historic sites of the Grimaldi of Monaco, which MIE has been organising for two years rather than the Palace,” said Albert Croesi. “The meeting of the historic sites of the Grimaldi of Monaco is, in fact, to present to visitors the history of the ancient ‘fiefs’ linking them to the Grimaldi dynasty and to promote these French and Italian territories, as well as their cultural heritage.”

Labelled products must meet a certain set of conditions, namely that they be a local food or artisanal product from an area deemed within the territory of the Grimaldi Historical Sites of Monaco. These products can be of an intangible nature, such as a local dance troupe or folk group from a designated community.

“The network of Grimaldi Historic Sites of Monaco has a potential of about 150 communities,” added Thomas Fouilleron. “The first products we have just labelled come from Valentinois and Matignon, territories with a fine gastronomic tradition and secular links with the Principality.”

Municipalities of the historic sites will give the MIE their opinions and expertise on the authenticity and quality of the products and services proposed.
