The German Arab Chamber of Industry and Commerce (GACIC), together with its partners in the Mediterranean Region, is organizing “Exchanges of Experience and Roadshows in Greece” for traditional Mediterranean cheese makers in which also an Egyptian delegation will participate.
Taking place from the 27th of September until the 2nd of October 2015, the event will take place in the framework of Lactimed, an EU project of the ENPI CBC MED initiative. Aiming to foster the production and distribution of typical and innovative dairy products in Egypt and other Mediterranean countries by organizing local value chains, Lactimed supports producers in their development projects and creation of new markets.
Cheese makers from Alexandria specializing in traditional artisanal cheeses from buffalo milk will make up the Egyptian delegation.
A core part of their journey will be a Road Show, leading the cheese manufacturers to the Greek cities of Thessaloniki, Corfu and Athens. A big stand will be constructed at a central point in each city, giving our Egyptian producers the opportunity to promote their products among Greeks as well as international tourists.
As their journey will take them to visit the DODONI Cheese Factory of Ionnina, an exemplary producer in the field of artisanal Mediterranean cheeses in Greece, and the Club of Chefs in Corfu, the delegation will further receive excellent opportunities for the exchange of technical experiences.
