By means of cost-benefit analysis, we assess whether it is worth introducing a traceability protocol in Italy, which allows to ascertain the area of origin of early potatoes. Until recently, early potato was a major export product in southern Italy. However, in the last ten years the sector has clearly stagnated. Our study seems to show that a country-of-origin labelling (COOL) policy - if appropriately implemented - could make this product competitive once again.
