Mediterranean Diet Foundation (FDM)
The Mediterranean Diet Foundation (FDM) is a non-profit organisation with a strict scientific and cultural agenda. It was founded in 1996 by the Association for the development of the Mediterranean Diet, to preserve the lifestyle that the Mediterranean countries have enjoyed for thousands of years. In addition, the Foundation contributes to the maintenance of a sustainable agriculture and to preserving the environment. The main objectives of the Foundation are to promote scientific research around the Mediterranean diet in relation to its healthy, historical, cultural and gastronomic aspects, and to disseminate the results of the studies.
The Mediterranean Diet Foundation was member of the FOOD programme from 2011 to 2015.
