Brief Description

For our yearly meeting with the farmers, that reached the 4th edition this year, we chose as a theme the importance of small-scale producers and of local, traditional products.
We presented the ESSEDRA project and partners in front of 250 people: farmers, producers, representatives of the local and national authorities and even the representative of the EU Commissioner Dacian Ciolos, Alina Ujupan, as well as the importance of keeping our traditions, customs and local knowledge.
Ben made also a description of the Ark of Taste and invited all those interested to join forces and work together for saving important elements of our food culture and tradition by submitting applications for products for the Ark.
We had a chance to discuss relevant aspects of the legislation, rules and regulations at national and EU level that affect us all.
