BOLZANO, Italy, Dec. 4 (Xinhua) -- Thousands of Italian farmers blocked the Brenner Pass at the border with Austria on Wednesday, protesting against food piracy and import of raw food ingredients of low quality.
Agricultural association Coldiretti claimed the so-called "false Italian food" (i.e. food made with foreign ingredients, but branded as Italian) is badly damaging the traditional agricultural and food production in Italy.
