In the wake of the success achieved last year in Corfu at the 1st International Capitalization Meeting of the MedDiet project that took place during the 2014 Edition of the AIC Forum, this year too at the 15th Edition held in Durazzo (Albania), the Agriculture Workgroup once more dealt with the subject of the importance of the Mediterranean Diet in the Adriatic-Ionian Macroregion area as well.
Besides the distribution of informative material, for the occasions a roll up was also produced stating the key concepts and messages of the MedDiet project including, just like last year in Corfu, an explicit appeal to sign the MedDiet Declaration (“Sign the MedDiet Declaration for the promotion and safeguarding of the Mediterranean Diet also in the Adriatic and Ionian Region!!”).
The project continues to enjoy great success, not only in the Marche Region, where the local Ancona Chamber of Commerce has set up an official MedDiet Infopoint, but also in other territories through the efforts of the Chambers of Commerce belonging to the AIC Forum.
In particular, in Durazzo keen interest was shown in the initiative and requests were made by the Campobasso Chamber of Commerce (Molise, Italy) and the representative of the national Chamber of Serbia for the MedDiet toolkit to be sent to schools, local authorities and also the material referring to the MedDiet Quality Label for restaurants.
