Local products – From the field to the shelf

Local products

From the field to the shelf

Lemnos’s fertile land and centuries’ tradition have contributed to the creation of products of exceptional quality, high nutritional value and exquisite taste.

In the Lemniot’s, but also of the Greek and other European consumer’s cupboards, one will find Kalathaki (PDO), melichloro and kaskavali cheese, tsipouro, a wide variety of wines, juice, salted pork or kavourma, a special wheat flour from mavragani grain, white-eyed beans , flomari, herbs and many other Lemnian products – ”loot” from a place that freely gives away its riches to the resident and visitor both.

Today, increasing competition from an international system of mass production and consumption undermines the productive prospects of remote areas characterized by small but quality production – such as Lemnos.

Recognizing the problems and twists created by this exogenous condition, the Terra Lemnia project seeks to calmly and realistically highlight the potential for the production and promotion of local products in the island of Lemnos.

By focusing on specific products derived from traditional farming and stockraising practices, the project aims to propose and support an appropriate set of tools (such as certifications, organizational and managemental measures) as well as study better ways of promotion, inside and outside of the island.
