Each producer is either personally known, or has been carefully sourced by originàrio' s founding members, not only for their outstanding dedication to their product, but also for their artisanal skill in creating it. Many of them though, lack the resources to promote themselves beyond their own region. Their produce, until recently, could only be accessed by informed locals or regional chefs and due to a small production, would never be found in Italian supermarkets or through larger generic produce suppliers.
