At the proposal of the Minister of Agriculture, Food Sovereignty and Forestry, Francesco Lollobrigida, and the Minister of Health, Orazio Schillaci, the Council of Ministers approved the bill containing provisions on the prohibition of production and marketing of synthetic food and feed. 

The aim of the new bill is to ensure the highest level of protection of citizens' health and to preserve the agri-food heritage, as a set of products that express the process of socio-economic and cultural evolution of Italy, of strategic importance in the territory of national interest.

The bill considers in its articles, the prohibition to use, in the preparation of food or beverages, to sell, keep for sale, import, produce for export, administer or otherwise distribute for food consumption, food or feed consisting of cell cultures or tissues derived from vertebrates, isolated or produced from animals.
