Cairo goes local

"The Cairo Study Day specifically focused on the valorization of quality and identity of Egyptian productions and food heritage and of Mediterranean agricultures, considering the peculiarity of their agricultural system and food traditions, the role of quality agriculture and Mediterranean diet in the development and the promotion of a Mediterranean model.

In the final conclusions it was highlighted that organic agriculture and geographical indications have to be considered strategic production patterns, particularly referring to the relevant role that quality productions can play on local markets. To enhance local market means also gaining consumers awareness and trust, improving market access for farmers and local productions also through restaurants and tourism industry sectors. "
