Based on its academic profile and trading activities, loliettoo® yearns for the release & diffusion of updated and critical INFORMATION linked to the GLOBAL OIL MARKET and to the fundamental management of PLANT GENETIC RESOURCES. As a matter of principle, we do not embrace any organic certification but we do support a sustainable management system for agriculture aimed at respecting nature’s cycles, contributing to high levels of biodiversity, protecting natural resources, producing high quality products and ensuring consumer confidence protecting consumer interests.
All these intentions are strongly supported by our partnership with Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa which coordinates the International Ph.D. Programme in Agrobiodiversity with the aim of enhancing human resource capacities in the use and management of genetic variation in agricultural and natural systems, in order to improve the sustainability of agricultural methods and conservation of genetic resources for the well-being of present and future generations. On 2015, loliettoo® has celebrated with the Scuola the 10th year of the international PhD program and wished to build with the PhD students a more and more productive sourcing network.

With these preliminary remarks, loliettoo
® fully agrees with the main concepts of The International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, a global treaty for food security and sustainable agriculture come into force in 2004 thanks to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). And to introduce loliettoo® blog, we share here part of the International Treaty’s preamble: 

“... questions regarding the management of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture are at the meeting point between AGRICULTURE, the ENVIRONMENT and COMMERCE, and ... there should be synergy among these sectors;

… responsibility to past and future generations to conserve the World’s diversity of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture;

… in the exercise of their sovereign rights over their plant genetic resources for food and agriculture, states may mutually benefit from the creation of an effective multilateral system for facilitated access to a negotiated selection of these resources and for the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising from their use.”

Unfortunately, despite the most virtuous intentions worldwide, malpractices are common and get confused with normality. Contaminations, adulterations, frauds occur everyday and are often in front of our eyes but we do not know since they are not widely publicized when revealed. With loliettoo
® we examine these issues in depth and report real things happening around all of us. Then we can all decide our own direction.
