“Traditional Food Path” Project

23 November 2009 No Comment

The County of Varaždin has decided to present its rich gastronomic offer and heritage to tourists in a new way – through the “Traditional Food Path”. It is a project that will allow tourists not only to enjoy the traditional delicacies of the Varaždin region but to participate in their preparation as well, in 11 family agricultural farms. This project will strengthen the tourist offer but also connect the producers of traditional products, among which some are protected, such as Varaždin cabbage, corn, honey and honey brandy, pumpkin oil, etc. By the end of the year, the farms included in the project will receive an info table containing their information, position on a map but also an interesting story of their products. Brown (tourist) signs have been set up within the project as well as a traditional products and manufacturers catalogue written in Croatian and English with a map of all producers. A development of the www. put-tradicionalne-hrane.com website is underway, and a web-shop is also a part of the plan since it will enable people interested in the traditional products of the County of Varaždin area, who live in remote areas, to purchase them. In addition to the promotion of traditional dishes and products of special quality, one of the project’s goals is to encourage agricultural farms, which still don’t have protected products, to participate in the certification process and the promotion of the chosen agricultural products. The “Traditional Food Path” should, in due course, be connected to the existing County of Varaždin wine roads.
