Welcome to the first edition of the newsletter series of the SMEOrigin project, which aims to make a difference in one of the most special industries in the European Union and worldwide – the agri-food industry.
European countries offer a unique heritage of regional food traditions and a diverse landscape of specialties, reflecting their rich history of multi-ethnic and cultural development. Regional food represents a common European cultural heritage and is therefore a major economic asset for many European regions. These products have a tremendous impact on local development, they are a cultural asset and they generate cooperation between various sectors such as tourism and agriculture.
In the following pages, you will find material on the overall context and objectives of the project, as well as information on the latest and upcoming developments and events. We will also keep you informed about our progress and key outcomes through the project website, thematic events, and newsletters.
